It was a rainy day today and I had driven through a heavy storm to get to the Farmers' Market in Kennett Square. The sky had cleared and I was headed home, waiting for a red light, when I noticed the car in front of me.
When I was a child, we used to sit on the front porch and call out the types of cars that passed by. Chevy Bel-Air! Nash Rambler! Edsel! Ford Fairlane! If you asked me now, I would have a hard time naming more than a couple of them.
So I have to say, this one stumped me, so I pulled up close enough to notice it was a Skye. Can't say I have ever seen a car like this before (although 10 minutes later, I did see a black one).
Anyway, the two pyramids in back drew my attention. But it was the pizza delivery sign between the pyramids, plus the Nevada license plate that gave me a back story for the driver.
Obviously (to me) he had lost his shirt in Vegas and moved to the east coast to find work. But this problem gambler could only find work delivering pizzas. And in a 2 seater convertible, this was not an easy task. What a sad story. Or can you come up with a better one?
