"Even with a quarter-million miles on the odometer, Vicky, my faithful ’85 Ford Crown Victoria two-door, loved fast runs on cruise control. She wasn’t one of those new suppository-shaped cars. Like me, Vicky was big and square and showing her age, but comfortable and reliable. Like me, she could be very intimidating in tight quarters and yet, cleaned up well. Most important for my many long trips, Vicky’s cassette player could blast out the music I liked: Jimmy Buffett’s brand of Gulf and Western, country and western, and old-time rock and roll."
(From Clearwater Run, Chapter 2)
