Sentence: "I only have mechaneyes for you," Carson crooned softly, as he stroked the side of his '78 Buick Century. "Those sleek new snazzy cars have nothing on you. They have but a shadow of your beauty and grace." His car was like an old friend to him. When people asked if he was getting a new car anytime soon, he would snap, "Would you trade in a friend of 32 years for someone you had just met?" Behind his back, people would say that if they had a friend of 32 years that smelled as bad as Carson's car did, they probably WOULD get rid of that friend.
