1936 Ford Custom Cruiser

THE LUCENT PROWLER a drive-by poem by Flyrod

It once was an elegant businessman’s coupe
A distinguished car for a selective group

Now resurrected from auto purgatory
To reign once again in all of its glory

You can rent it by the hour for a hundred dollar bill
To cruise the streets of Vegas and get yourself a thrill

The low-slung machine is a sight to behold
The want-to-be owners will keep it bankrolled

A lucent prowler like a crystal clear moon
A cadmium glow like a golden doubloon

Take it all in and pretend that you are famous
Like a chocolate chip cookie from the man named Amos

It was made in thirty-six, it’s a custom Ford Cruiser
Who will ever know that you are just a loser?

Make some heads turn and enjoy every minute
You’re the master of the road just as long as you are in it.

Burn a little rubber and make that engine roar
Who would ever guess that you are such a bore?

Drive it on back there’s another sucker waiting
For the thrill of a lifetime his cash it is baiting

The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.
