MY ES­CORT

Classic Ford - - MAILBOX -

The day that I first saw you, you looked so very sad, but un­der all that muck and grime, you re­ally weren’t half bad. A bat­tery a ser­vice and some fresh fuel too, a damn good clean I couldn’t be­lieve you looked al­most brand new, sit­ting there for all those years and never turned a wheel, and for what your owner wanted you re­ally were a steal. So I set about those lit­tle tasks to bring you back to life, and even en­listed help from my won­der­ful lady wife, I sorted all those lit­tle jobs and she the in­te­rior clean, a bril­liant sight you were that day the best I’d ever seen. And so to put you on the road we needed tax and MoT, the test was not a prob­lem but your tax was not yet free. But next year will be bet­ter as you be­come of age, much to my amuse­ment and the chan­cel­lor’s petty rage, you’ve gone from look­ing poorly and sadly un­der par. To my beau­ti­ful Es­cort pop­u­lar a prize win­ning lit­tle star, you’ve brought me so much plea­sure since the day when we first met, that I can never see us parting for many, many years yet.
