"Before I leave," Ricky continued. "1 want you to see how this coupe will be exhibited." He unwrapped a long cylindrical object he had been carrying, and held it up, letting it unroll in front of him. On gold letters, against a blue background (Sharon's idea and work), they read: I STREET ROD i Shown fcy dicty Madi»o» ! (DellvtHe Timing Association) Ricky turned the sign from side to side, giving everyone a good look. Then he rolled it up and tossed it on the seat of the coupe There were a few last farewells. Handshakes and good wishes from the DTA guys, from iiis parents, and finally Sharon. "I'm coming up on the DUS to- unorrow." she said, looking at 'him proudly "And 111 ride back :with you tomorrow evening—if ijou want me to." "It's a date," Ricky said. He climbed in the truck and (looked out, smiling. His father jana mother stood below him They looked proud and nappy ;And he was proud of them, i Proud of the way his father had [worked beside him for weeks, and had the confidence to invert money in'the project Proud that h:s mother had understood, and hadn't minded their crazy schedule that upset the bouse. "It wasn't an easy time," Mr Madison said to Ricky's mother a? he squinted at the retreating trucK. "But he made it. He'U be all right now." Arnie came up, puffing. "Good send-off, eh, Mr. Madison?" "He really accomplished some- t ;:)". Arnie We've been looking lor the magic something. I gu«M *Ya," Arnie said. The truck moved ahead slowly, the farewells echoed in his ears.

I didnt notice it was you." "You were pretty excited. Nice rod you built." "Yeah. It's all right, 1 guess." He didn't want Merle to feel bad. after their failure together "You still planning to have your own shop some day?" "You bet I am But I guess I'll go to college first There's t lot I have to learn." "Uh-huh. Well, tf you ever need somebody to run the place lor you. and you ain't got anybody else in mind "Did you se« the namepiate oo the coupe?" "No. What'd you use?" "Nothing outside," Ricky said, a half-ashamed smile on his face. 'But inside there's a little monogram that reads C-M." "Well, 111 b« doggoned," Merte said. "Does it mean what t fhink?" "I didnt forget the help you gave me, or the plans we made," Ricky said. "Merle, the Connor- Madison is on its way to its first public showing." • • • CHARON arrived in Des Moines ^ the following afternoon She took a trolley-bus to the state fairgrounds, where the show was being held in one of the huge buildings. The floor space was crowded with cars of every description There were rods for show and rods that w«re built strictly for competitioB There was tvery- thjng from cars that sagged under the weight of chrome gadget? to stripped model? that boast- 4 a steering wheel to go with the tremendous ana oeautifui power plant There were rods of every size, shape, color and oreea But it was easy to find Ricky. She headed toward the largest crowd, and sure enough, when she worked ner way through, :hey were looking at the coupe. The little car. like the others in the show had been roped oS to protect it from the overcurious and the souvenir hunters. Ricky stood just inside the roped area, talking to another boy and writing in a little pad he carried. Sharon moved toward him, waiting until he was through talking to the other boy before she moved into his line of vision. The moment be saw her. Ricky's eyes shone. "You made it," he said in a pleased tone, putting away the notebook. "I said I would. Your coupe certainly is popular." "You don't know the batf of it. Let's get something to eat and 111 tell you all about it" * • • T3ICKY called to a boy neat him who was showing a compact little roadster that had been stripped of fenders, channeled, and sported a heavily chromed engine with three carburetors. "Hey Swede keep an eye on the coupe for me, wil you? I'm going for chow." The boy raised a hand and touched two fingers to his brow. 'Will do, Ricky." "Thanks." Ricky took Sharon by the arm and steered her coward a lunch counter that had been set up. "What a time I've bad here," Ricky said. "I'm dizzy." "What from?" Ricky took the notebook from his pocket as they sat at the counter "Know what's in there?" "How could I?" "Names," Ricky said, his voic* heavy with excitement "Namaa of at least a dozen guys who want to buy the coupe. All I have to do is name a price.
