The shape of the nose changed to a simple curve. The fenders changed, too, sweeping back, dipping gently, fading into the body It was combed back, so to speak, given a curved windshield, a graceful slope and a flowing rear deck. And when it was assembled, he was ready to paint He wanted at least seven coats when the color had been decided upon. He was sanding on it the night Sharon came in to ask about upholstery materials. Sharon looked at th« unpainted body of the new coupe "You did it." "Did what?" "The lines you wanted. Even now it has a look of lightness, of flight, almost. As though it would be as light and graceful as a bird. It's terrific." "I see it jet black," Ricky said, sitting down tiredly. "Like nine out of 10 others will be." . . •'What else?" "I saw an interesting color combination for home decoration in a magazine. It combined pink, brown, and copper." "Pink!" Ricky yelled. "Pink! Not my coupe, lady." "1 thought you'd react like that," Sharon said. "So I bought a little model car and painted it that way. Soft pink, brown and copper. Like this." She unwrapped the little car she had brought and Ricky's eyes bulged. It was something! The body of the car was a soft, glowing pink. The wheels and other metal trim had been tinted • coppery color instead of the usual chrome. The interior wai the brown of good leather. The wheel was white, the dash a natural-wood tone. All metal pan? were also coppery. "W«U?" Sbaroa Ricky looked from the little model to his coupe, seeing it done the same way. "You've got it," Ricky said "You've got it. You're a terrific partner. I ... I could kiss you for that." "Do you need other reasons? Sharon teased. The coupe's fate was decided. It would be pink, brown aad copper. TTAD he worked openly, Delville would have been bored and critical. But when Ricky's rod was put under wraps. Dellville became curious, and interested. Ricky wouldn't talk, nor Sharon, nor bis father, nor the body-shop men who were helping. And because everyone working on the coupe kept the secret, Dellville wondered if it really had something big coming up. Asked about nil rod at school, Ricky would just grin ind shake his head. Asked about it at the bank, his father would say it was "something," and change the subject. Body-shop men would say that Dellville was going to b* surprised, and that was alL .The way interest piled up, the day of the unveiling was looked forward to like a holiday. And the day came during the Thanksgiving holiday, tnd although school was out the school band bad assembled on the square, where Ricky's car would be shown for the first time The mayor was going to give him :h« town's blessing. Rather than risk getting the coupe dirty, or in an accident, t car dealer had offered him the use of a truck to deliver the coupe to the show. It was on tht truck, covered, and H would be thaw* bo the town iMfott they dtoowt away. As soon as the truck narked, the crowd closea in Ricky UfUMtaMfcM the coupe. The mayor came up a small ladder and walked to Ricky, shaking his hand. "Quite a day," Mayor Travis puffed. The mayor signaled for quiet, and after the crowd had yelled a little louder in response, he said a few words. He said he had noticed certain young drivers with a certain sticker on t±ieir cars, with the initials of a certain club, and be had been impressed by their courtesy. He imagined, he said, that the council would be glad to listen to any plans they might have about auto-sports events. • • • r THE canvas was rolled back and the little coupe was revealed to every eye in the brittle light of the November morning. It was beautiful. The pink body shone with the soft depth of the inside of a sea shell, the copper trim and copper-wire wheels added a subdued richness. And the inside! Completely lined with a dark brown leather-likt fabric, the instrument panel finished in antique pine, the instruments ringed with a thin line of copper, and the steering wheel a circle of gleaming white. Ricky stood by proudly while the crowd pressed in close around the truck, looking in the open doors of the coupe, exclaiming, amazed, impressed. Arnie VanZuuk climbed the ladder at the back of the truck and walked toward Ricky, every ounce of his bulk exuding pleas* ure and pride. "A beauty . ya, a beauty." Arnie chuckled. "Who would fuess this is the same one you bought six months ago from Merle?" "It has changed a little," Ricky admitted, ready to burst with pride. "Think I'll win any prizes?" "1 think you win them ail," Arnie said. "But the big one you win la here." -Hew?" "1 thin* maybe you fellers get a drag strip. I been listening to the mayor You'd think it was his idea ' "Oh, I'm sure it's the television that has put him to sleep—it's not you people!" !• thert anything •(&• I can g*t for your* THE REAL M'-COW By BILL WALKER ZEB IS RUSMIM'DOVM TA'dfT HtS NCW CAR PERTECTED W*>M W..L WALKER INSURANCE AGENCY Glenco Bid;.
