A creative writing piece about an old Mustang GT that the author bought when he was in high school. It goes through the typical relationship cycle of a guy and his hot rod with love at first sight to eventually loathing the car because so many things go wrong with it and it costs so much to repair. The relationship between the car and the author is given lifelike attributes, as the relationship has its ups and downs just like any other relationship. The car is described with human qualities.

From the Paper:

"Ahhhh! What a beautiful sight! You look so shiny and new. But how can that be? You are a 1986 Ford Mustang GT. Are you too good to be true? I don't think so. I think you and I were meant to be together. I love your lustrous bright blue paint glistening in the warm summer sun. You barely have a bit of rust on you. But we can take care of that. NO PROBLEM! That will probably be the first thing I do for you. I'll sand down the rough spots and make you look perfect. Your interior is a little dirty too, but that's nothing some elbow grease won't take care of. I mean, since nothing else is wrong with you I'll be able to afford it, right?"
