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
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.
