emotional little cars

One doesn't believe it at first but some cars actually have a heart... a big heart.  The motor of their entire being. It runs their entire being as well and offers a cheerful rhythm of their own to add to the chorus of the city of Tycom.

 

Emotional little cars are brighter than others, maybe it is because they are bright yellow or maybe it is because their rhythm is so capturing and full of spirit but these cars are great entertainers. It is a bit difficult to get to knoe them because their cheerfulness can become so bright it can be called blinding.

 

Positive thought is the gasoline needed and prefered to keep the motor and cable smooth and working. The little brown wheels love action, exploration and adventure especially in good company rides in the sun are big fun. Inside and outside of the big city of Tycom the emotional little cars like to run, run, run.

    I had a ’64 Dodge.. “the old girl”.. we went 300,000 miles (480,000 km) together. she had a great heart.. and I loved her like a lady. I truly did. she was absolutely real to me..

      sounds like she was a great car and took you very far… emotional attachment is important and a lot of people actually feel loved back by what they love… I guess that is the origin of the asian belief that things have a soul that develops by being loved

        I’ve never experienced quite lie that again.. she really was real to me. I told her my deepest secrets.. sometimes I could almost hear her talk back. I truly did love her like a lady…

          She was your first car? Or your dream car? I think the fact that you loved her in a cherishing way is what you mean… Maybe like some racer who said the car protected him from injury in the crash… or the sailor who tells that the ship just made it to the shore before it sunk because it tried to do its duty…
          It is great… so did she tell you her secrets, too? Or was she just a great confidential listener?

            not my first.. that was a hot rod I customized. no.. I bought her in Reno.. I had lots of money and could have afforded something much nicer but magic happened when I sat in her. it was love. and she did communicate with me.. she loved to run.. 700, 800, even 1000 miles in a day. she’d purr happily.. and she let me know when she didn’t feel good.. I rebuilt her engine twice. but her final ailment, a cracked frame that proved to be fatal, she kept from me.. she wanted go take me home before she broke forever.. she almost made it. she rests in a shady spot by a river.. I tried to find her last year but too much had changed and I couldn’t find the way. she lives still in my memories..

              that sounds like a very precious personal experience … you should write a story about it and give her a new place to live, purr and ride

    Emotional little cars…I still have my few Matchbox collection

      Matchbox hehe they were to pricey… I always had little no name metall cars, they were fun, too… I have a collection of different cars still somewhere I remember the carpet races best… the racecar never won the beetle did LOL

        I think i was in Grade 2 or 3 elementary when i started buying Matchbox. The cheapest was at three pesos that time. Nowadays Matchbox here are made in China or Taiwan. Those i bought were made in England.

          I didn’t know that… Matchbox here was always around 20 or even more while the no name product was about 2-8… So I always got them as presents and for myself… I don’t know here they were made though but I guess some asian country, too

              I don’t know it has been some time since I looked at toycars in the store but I think today’s cars are all special with motor and sound no need to imagine anymore or push anymore? I hope it isn’t though because it was so much fun letting them run hehe just wrote a haiku about it

            Lots of remote control cars here but i still prefer those little Matchbox. I did own some of these battery operated cars though.

    Matchbox…i just love to look at them and hold them. My first Matchbox was a red bulldozer my mother bought at the Manila Domestic Airport when family was about to fly to father’s province island years and years ago.

      chuckle sounds like a great memory… my first car was a little pink ice cream truck with a yellow sunscreen you could pull out at the side some kid threw it away screaming it never wanted to see this rubbish again, the next one was an oldtimer my dad brought home as excuse for not taking me somewhere as promised, then came the blue beetle because dad worked a month from 8 till 9 and had no time for me, then the red cabriolet because I didn’t get the leading role in the schoolplay since the rich kid’s dad wanted his to play and gave lots of money for supply on the condition his kid played… hehe it became quite a large collection over time…

        I only have two minus the bikes. I also have what was called way back then a trolley. Its called a scooter nowadays…one foot on it and the other foot is use to push away. I can’t remember what happened to those toys, how they were disposed.

          nope didn’t have one of those… I had something with pedals and three wheels later on

            The trolley became a fad again about five years ago and this time they had it in stainless steel.

              yes, I remember seeing people everywhere with it, I also remember it not being so well liked when was small
