£41,140 got you a 3.2 litre dohc 18 valve V6 engine that could pull the car to 60 mph in 8 seconds. Do we need more facts?
The sky overhead is metallic grey
The steel roof gone too – a sky for a canopy
Among the wild horses of Swabia again?
Asphalt blurs, rolls, rips under alloy wheels
Each moment embodies the weight of the steel
Moulten, liquid, burning: a cauldron
Drops violent heat and from it cold metal, makes a throne
For frail human flesh. Weakness styles human choices.
Red: those lights disappearing into the night
Light on the road. Oil so cold and hard gripping the wheels
You grip the wheel and drive.
Stuttgart. The Neckar flows eternal.
And the road too. Always different.
Like a generation of cars or people, changing yet trying to be the same.
You think too hard. You blink.
Convertible, over and over over.
From the dark sky the stars look upon the undercarriage.
