This lovely car is beautifully descripted by the author of this ode:- we don't feel we need to say more!
There was a time when motor cars were fun to drive,
back then they didn't have seat belts, which help you stay alive.
They had quirky things like running boards and trafficators too,
those were little semaphore arms that gave the direction true.
Jessica is just like that in two tone fancy colour,
she's an MG of classic vintage, a real beauty to discover.
There's nothing more that she prefers that to show off in the shining sun,
and be photographed by one and all: she smiles for everyone.
This classic car has survived the years and not been torn assunder,
not for her, the breaker's yard, her body parts to plunder.
Despite her years she's greatly loved, her lines to be admired,
and she still puts on a turn of speed to get the adrenaline fired.
Out on the highway she likes to go and keep up with the traffic,
but serious problems can arise when all the cars are static.
The water in her engine boils and out the steam comes hissing,
she doesn't have a temperature fan but it's not exactly missing.
It simply wasn't ever there like modern cars have today,
there's so much missing with vintage cars, it's the price you have to pay.
But for all the lack of equipment and technology,
there's something intangible this car has, this lovely old MG.
It's that distinct smell of old car, of old walnut and of leather,
a fragrance that's so captivating: it doesn't get much better.
Then there's her style and grace and beauty, and class in overload,
but her greatest asset is the fun you can have, that comes by the bucketload.
