The Seat of Power

This abandoned convertible tempts us with an open cockpit; it says, 'Come in, sit in the seat, grab the wheel, feel the power, and forget your cares for a while.' No matter that this car is long past it's running condition; no matter that we are adults, and the derelict is behind the fence; we feel it's pull. There is nothing like the feel of a leather covered steering wheel, though most of the hide is gone.
