Liz Howard, a treasured old friend - that is to say we became friends about half a lifetime ago, not that she is old - is a Canadian poet (and scientist). And a very good one at that. She recently made the Canadian short list for the Griffin Poetry prize. I looked it up and it is a major award.
Oh, she was also a finalist for a Governor General's Award last fall. Another major award. That's right, Liz is a serious force in the poetry world.
In honour of Liz and her accomplishments, I have written a poem (hopefully this is not a dubious honour). Since this is a car blog, it is about my car. Make sense?
And while I can't even pretend to have any talent in this field, I can probably safely say that it is likely the best poem you will ever read about a 1985 Ford Crown Victoria. But, maybe have a few drinks before you read it just to be safe.

Tesla unveiled its much ballyhooed Model 3 to an invite only crowd and via live stream this past Thursday. Looks like it will be a winner because as much as I want to hate it, I really want to drive one. And that’s right, I said ballyhooed!
