White Car Grey Car

For the life of me,
I cannot remember.
Did it start out as a white car
or a grey car?
I'm quite sure white.
And then it was loved so much,
the white peeled off, leaving part of the primer showing.

My son loved his Hot Wheel cars.
But this particular one was his favorite!!!!!
If he was separated from it, he would cry "white car."
(Or was it "grey car?")
Either way, you get the idea.
It was like his security blanket.
It went everywhere with him.
And God forbid if it was left behind.
I vividly remember driving back to my parents' home to retrieve it ... late at night.
When I saw this image, I knew it was absolutely perfect
for his birthday card.
Happy birthday, my son!
