      A neighbor of mine has, after 30 years, finished his hot rod Lincoln. Open front wheels, open engine, dayglow orange paint job, chrome everything. He takes it out and putters around town on sunny days. Everyone who has lived in the neighborhood long enough smiles when he goes by, because we’ve all been out for evening walks and seen him working on it under his garage lights with the doors open.Report
