Shakespearean Sonnet
 

Those timeless lines though old are wonderful;

those kidney grills are an iconic sight.

Blue and white your badge is so colorful;

those haloed headlights angels in the night.

Your speed is slow compared to modern cars,

and your technology is out of date.

Your little scratches like some well earned scars;

this age is just a thing that makes you great.

That worn out leather makes my heart turn warm;

three pedals make me run and jump for joy.

Your body though so worn has braved the storm;

investing in you will need a great ploy.

Your age does not define ability,

your imperfections are just love to me.
