Friday Fictioneers – “That Old Roadster”
This weeks Friday Fictioneers story is inspired by the photo below. I love antique cars and this photo had me with a rare case of inspiration overload. Don’t forget to stop by and read the other Friday Fictioneers posts.
Billy and the rest of the caravan pulled into the lane and came to a stop on the gravel road.
“I don’t know dad. That hill’s pretty steep,” Billy said.
“This old girl can make it,” his dad said. “She’s got more in her than that new fangled gizmo you call a car.”
Halfway up the roadster starts to cough.
“She’ll make it.”
Billy knew the old roadster was tired when they reached the top. He parked in front of the old dilapidated house with its fresh coat of paint.
Rubbing the dash Billy’s father whispered, “I told you we’d make it. We’re finally home.”
