Gto - Poem by Juan Olivarez

It was long and gold with a honeycomb grill,
And something inside it, wouldn't let it stand still.
It had white leather buckets, and a four on the floor,
When I stepped on the gas, it would start to roar.

The gauge said 160, man could it go,
There was nothing faster than my GTO.
I would cruise down the streets, with the ragtop down,
Turning every head in our quiet little town.

I know I'll never see it's like again,
But wonderful memories filter through my brain.
The luckiest men that you'll ever know,
Are the ones that have owned, a GTO.

    Your GTO sounds wonderful, though I'm afraid I don't know what one is! ! A motorbike perhaps? (Report) Reply
