|JENNIFER AND JOSEPHINE
|"Jennifer was already an old automobile way back in the year 1933. The old touring car had traveled over a hundred thousand miles and been sold or traded so many times she couldn't remember all the owners. Now at last she was worn out and sold for scrap iron and left sitting in the far corner of a car junkyard, just passing the time rusting away. Still Jennifer wasn't altogether unhappy, at least she had a friend, a scrawny stray cat named Josephine."
|My father had nostalgia for many of the things that were common during his childhood. In addition to steam locomotives, wild places, and circuses, he loved early automobiles.
