THE SILVER ARROW a Drive-by Poem by Flyrod
A Silver Arrow car rises from the past
The day it was born, its legend was cast
Nineteen thirty three was the year of it’s birth.
Ten thousand dollars is what it was worth.
To the big New York Auto Show it came
The critiques declared it was destined for fame
Styled to seduce the economic elite
The Depression ahead would bring its defeat
Back in the day they made only five
At the present time only three still survive
Called a masterpiece of Art Deco Design
With elegant detail and graceful line
One hundred fifteen miles per hour
A car with stature and plenty of power
One has immerged and recently sold
Two million dollars the price I was told
Only Pierce Arrow could make such a car
The public continues to make it a star
From the Harrah’s collection it was restored
Over the decades its legend has soared
For beauty and grace it stands alone
An automobile in a class of its own
