men don’t make cars (like they used to)

Another automotive geared poem.

Men don’t make cars like they used to do:

long sweeping lines, strong colours too:

such poetic palettes, rich array of hues.

Horns happily honked, grilles that grinned,

mudguard covered spoke wheels spinned,

engines growled – wondrous whirlwind!


Dial displays, walnut wood dashboards,

large leather seats with room to afford

– classic cars never leave you bored!


Our Sixties saloon six-cylinder growled,

brown Triumph 2000 like tiger prowled,

acceleration fast, Morris Minors scowled.


One day my dad bought an MG sports,

male madness, mid-life crisis of sorts;

famously, we five fitted in, of course!


My parents in hand stitched leather seats,

I bent in footwell, near mother’s feet,

boot and bench filled, family complete.


More modest cars purchased on divorce,

gone the grand engines, farewell torque

– replaced by brands of ill-report…

Customs -N- Classics View All

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
