First Line: It's a lean car - a long-legged dog of a car - a gray ghost eagle car
Last Line: Gray-ghost car.
Subject(s): Automobiles; Cars


IT'S a lean car ... a long-legged dog of a car ... a gray-ghost eagle
car.
The feet of it eat the dirt of a road ... the wings of it eat the
hills.
Danny the driver dreams of it when he sees women in red skirts and red
sox in his sleep.
It is in Danny's life and runs in the blood of him ... a lean
gray-ghost car.
