Ah, Red – what a gal! A strapping lass; all business, no bullshit. Plain of face but sprite of eye:
Comely comin’ and sturdy goin’:
She was rode hard ’till she couldn’t no more, then left out to pasture since before some trees were seeds:
She lost her shine, but kept her beauty:
Autocar Trucks. Pennsylvania built, 1907-1953, the year of my birth, when they were eaten by White Motor Company, then resurrected in 1980 by Volvo. Autocar’s founder, Louis Semple Clark, invented the spark plug for gasoline engines and standardized the driver-on-the-left configuration we now take for granted. I Wiki’d it.
…an American classic.
