The crowd was gone. All around the floor contestants were readying their rods to be driven or trucked home. Exhibitors were tearing down their displays and booths Sharon sat in the coupe, with the door open Ricky sat on the floor, his back against a coppery wire front wheel The gold cup iwas beside him. First prize, j street rod division. He felt ready !to cry "It was your color scheme thai idid it," Ricky told her. "'The guys i wandered around and the first (things they locked at were the I rods with the top engines. When ithey sae enough engines, they i start lookin-: at bodies, and wnen ithey do that, they get around to jme. After all. you can install ;Sny engine yovi want in anything iyou've got. almost, and the en- igine's only half a sharp street ro<i. Guys want something dif- iierem. Something but of this world, like the coupe," "You look tired," Sharon said. "I haven't been able to rest," he said. lf You know, I've nad people who aren't hot rodders ask me about the coupe. One guy who wanted to know how much it wouJd take for me to design birr, a new body for a Cadillac! You Know what that means. Sharon? I'm on my way!" "Oh, Ricky! That's wonderful!" "Wonderful! It's everything! It's—I iust can't believe it. Honest. I'm afraid I'll wake up and find out I'm dreaming." "1 was sure it would be this way," Sharon said loyally. "I don't know what I thought," Ricky said. "But if it hadn't been for you, I'd never gone through with it." Sharoo did not >nswer She too was tired. Everything liad werke<J out. Impossible everything Ir ws«. Ukt a dream. H« tbou«ti« <* tb« I help Sharon had given him, and his parents, and the guys, and Merle, and Arme. . They had been so good to him he wanted to shed rears of gratitude And at the same time he felt sick It was over The work, the tension, the worry, it was all ov*r. And now he felt an awful letdown, almost a feeling of despair. Arid lired tired. j A shrill whistle brought, his j head up. his eye? open. He j scrambled to his feel as he saw j j them strolling toward him m | ! their boots. Levis and black jack- I ets Jerry, Chub, Sherm . . and j Link. 44 T SEE you fooled them," Jerry said, his handsome face showing his pleasure. "We heard about it on the radio, »o we thought we r d be your honor guard home." "Those judges must have been blind!" Chub exclaimed. "I saw 50 cars better than this broken- down heep. How much did you pay to win?" He grinned broadly, proud and pleased. "Does everybody down home know 1 won?" Ricky asked. "A couple of cats and dogs might not," Jerry said. "Well, you ready to go?" •Tm waiting for Merle. We have to load the coupe «» his truck." "Awwww . .* Chub's lip c u rl e d with disappointment. "Ain't you gonn* drive home? We want a real parade." Link spat, "Maybe it won't run under its own power." he said sarcastically. "It might run better "than you think," Ricky *aid grimly "No fifhu, you two," Jerry said. "I ain't fighting," Link s»d. He c«st a contemptuous glance at the coupe. "But I got * right to say what 1 think. I think it's a gook wagon. All show »nd no stuff." 1 Bicfcy «•**•*. Unk dMta't what was under the hood. He didn't know. He thought it was the same old engine. It was, mainly, but it had a. three-pot manifold, Edelbrock high-compression heads, a %-race cam, Kong ignition and a high-speed rear-end. "I know what you're driving, Link," Ricky said insolently. "But you don't know what I'm driving. You )ust take my word for it now—my coupe's got more stuff in the paint than yours has under the hood." "Talk is cheap." Link said, his lips curling. He looked hard and mean. "Wait until we have that drag strip in Dellville." Ricky said. "You'll-see." "1 think we're gonna get Jt too." Sherm said. "Everybody wants to join the DTA now. and the Mayor said if we can aU keep OUT of trouble this winter, he'll see about the strip next spring Boy. are we gonna hav« a slow-moving town!" OICKY looked at Link's narrow, dark face. "You joined yet?" "I'm no lousy kid.. I drive th* way I want to." "You won't drag on our strip, then." ''If 1 don't, you won't have to run that gook wagon against me. Nice way to chicken out" Be turned and walked away, spitting disdainfully Ricky wanted to go after him and beat nis txrainj out, but he kept his place Link would try to spoil everything. "Don't let him get your goat,* Jerry said. "He's lust mad because the guys are aiJ following your lead Let's go home." "1 need gas." Ricky said, his eyes still following Link. Sharon looked trouoled "1 thought Merle was coming with the truck." Ricky shook his head, his eyes shining. "I'd like to drive oaek with the guys. You Itnow something? I've never driven the coupe since it wa$ re-designed.
