The ultimate car

A sign recalling the early years of Boise. Wonder what it was like to ride around the countryside in one of those?

an ultimate car, this
body, this engine
sparking a heart's
firing, this steering
in ear canals
veering & wobbly/
& despite variable road
conditions, we go
forward? reverse? stall?
ultimate car since erratic
unlike the Volkswagen or
but never simply a painted
image in place,
but if one, one
about to rush
into painterly

Thank you, Anon, for your intriguing verse...

What fabulous signage! I do have to visit Boise someday, as I think I could spend lots of time photographing all the cool old signs around town. I like the juxtaposition of the new Beetle with the old Ultimate Car.

Hi Katie,
There are some interesting signs and buildings in the downtown area. I liked the pairing of the old and new cars, too.
I see you're having a fabulous time in Missoula...
