  §   Dramatis Personae James Gilbert (m), 45, good-looking, tall; Ralph deMayo (m), 45, ordinary-looking.

  §  Synopsis “James and Ralph meet by chance at a seaside boardwalk and discuss a vintage car Ralph has brought to display at a car show. The two men were both lovers of the same girl in high school, Jane, and that this had created a bitter rivalry between them. Since their high school days, however, Jane has died, and they both mourn her loss. Ralph reveals that the car he has lovingly restored had originally belonged to Jane. Both men get into the car and agree to take a drive together.

  §  Comment “Script-in-hand reading at the Brick Theater in Philadelphia, November, 1999. Produced by the Theatrix Theater Company in New York, February, 2000. Slated for production by the Pennsylvania Playhouse in Allentown, April, 2000. Note: Although this play revolves around a car, the production has worked well having two rows of chairs representing the car.”

  §  Themes cars, friendship, love, nostalgia.
