Good reading and more bits and pieces connecting the real people behind
the names on the screen.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

I'm not a Poet and I know it.

I bought me some Dodges, really a bunch of Hodge Podges.

Cut me some tin, beat on some tin, and lost me some skin.

Lots of welding, and melding of parts, pieces and scrap, holy cow there was lots of crap.

Wheels and tires and way too many wires.

Had to be a nine inch for all the cubic inch.

Four years of learning, yearing, longing for the rumble and roar of the open road.

Four years of spending, mending, and tending the build thread, all made possible by the great family we call Undead Sleds

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Here I sit with the key in the ignition
With great anticipation, I can't wait to hear the engine

I turn the key but, to my surprise the starter is dead and refuses
Now I sit here and to me it confuses

My mind goes over what could be the matter
Then without warning the engine begins to clatter

Man, how I love the sound of a good cam
Now I can go to the restaurant and eat my Green Eggs and Ham

Default Time's Up!

Okey Dokey

By my count we had eight brave souls contributing eleven poems. Darn fine ones too.
23crate submitted three and Mercury Mac chipped in with two.
Dr C., 05snopro440, smallfoot, Sam Fear, DozerII and Old Iron contributed one each.
Now, to determine who gets the swag. If we're going to have a vote, I need some computer savvy member to step up and set it up. Anyone willing to volunteer?

We're going to need a first, second and third place winner, with earthman's $50 prize going to first place. Crate will have 3 entries and Mac will have two. Let's have voting run 2 weeks with everyone getting one vote.

If no one sets up a voting scheme, well, just post your vote for the poem you like best.

It certainly isn't easy to do something out of one's comfort zone. Writing poetry is about as different from hot rod building as you can get. A much appreciated "Thank You" to everyone who contributed.
