By John Ross Harvey

Have you ever had anything that simply
Bothers the hell out of you?
Something that’s supposed to be a hobby
Or a relaxing pastime?
I purchased a die-cast car model
American Graffiti’s 1955 Chevy 150 (aka Bel-Air)
It came without several parts
It had extra parts not required
It had wheels that do not fit the spindles of the axles
I drilled the wheels, now they are too big!
The glue doesn’t set and they keep falling off!
Not being a fan of the post 60’s Chevys
I like the 1955 model
But it won’t finish going together!
It may yet find a circular file
Unless the glue finally worked.
