Long, Low and Wide

Long, Low and Wide By Elton Camp American cars of the fifties were a big hit Although some in a garage wouldn’t fit No tailfin could possibly be too high A wraparound windshield had to spy Gobs of shiny chrome was the in thing Like a cheap woman covered in bling They weaved uncertainly down the way Safety was not a concern of the day They would rattle, shimmy and shake The shoddy construction was a mistake Ten miles per gallon is all some got Get 100,000 miles and they were shot That decade was the beginning of disgust So that later, foreign cars became a must Those of us who were young in that time Considered those cars to be so sublime
