The Shiniest thing I saw today

Each morning as the new sun shines and I walk to my bus stop, I pass by a car that is much adored.

Each surface has been buffed and polished. The white sidewalls on the tires gleam. All the brand logos have been removed from the car; perhaps to make it more "fly" or to prevent commercialism from ruining the genius design of the body itself.

Someone spends a lot of time on this vehicle.

Someone loves it very much.

Some one is very proud of it.

Someone is attached to family life in 1993 because rather than a hot rod or a muscle car, this car is a mid-1990's Plymouth Acclaim.

Seeing such pride being taken over such a simple car warms my heart. I day dream that this was the first car this person bought, or perhaps they are a car enthusiast who is also a firm believer in not taking out an auto loan.
