    A detailers poem

    I wrote this when I bought a 1969 280Se Mercedes, I guess you might agree I'm kind of obcessed about detailing after reading it. Enjoy, Gary

    She came in tired and worn
    Time and the elements took their toll
    I could see through her
    She was from worthy stock
    It was the first time we met
    And we were alone
    I gave her a careful look
    Dusty eyes shadowed her youthful smile
    At one time she was the pride of the stock
    The envy of all
    No one could demand that kind of attention
    All eyes were on her
    The bright shine glowing from her body
    Was all but gone
    Left behind in the dirt of the earth
    She needed attention and I had it to give
    Slowly we felt secure
    I gave her tender loving care
    She needed it so much
    I removed the fragments that shaded her poise
    Soon, the gleam came back
    Dignity returned
    Now others are awe struck to be near her
    Nothing can compare to this shining beauty
    Magnificent when standing still
    Graceful moving through space
    She is a rare find, nothing can come close
    Forever a part of me
    A three pointed star
    Mercedes was has name
    She wore a silver dress
    The bell of the ball
    The was the day
    I fell in love
    As my 280SE drove away
    Now I'm forever in her spell Gary /Perfect Auto Finish

    Re: A detailers poem

    You have hidden talents, my friend.

    In all the decades that I've been slathering lotions 'n potions on painted surfaces and chromed metal "bits" - all in the name of trying to get them shinier than they ever had a right to be,,,,well,,,,,,I never really thought about doing up a poem on the experience.

    And still don't.

    But that's not to say that I can't appreciate the initiative and your God-given talent in this regard!

    Keep on keeping on, Gary. You're a real asset on this forum.
