Here is the interior of this cool, home-made car. I plan to print out a sampling of the FF stories and will attempt to find the owner the next time I'm in Florida. I have seen this car parked at the same restaurant twice so I'm hopeful we'll connect.

Jenny sat on a sofa, avoiding the gaze of her trust-fund cousins. They had always looked down their plastic-surgery noses at her waitress job, but her sweet, funny uncle had loved her.
The attorney announced $100,000 would go to each grandchild for educational purposes. He then addressed her two cousins by name. “Your father has bequeathed his cattle ranch to you.”
Jenny stiffened, knowing how they loathed getting their hands dirty.
He turned to Jenny. “Your Uncle Clever left you his favorite car.”
Her smug cousins laughed while Jenny wondered how she would spend the $1 million she knew was under the floorboard.
Actually, I wrote TWO stories this week. Maybe I'm entitled since I took the photo. Maybe not.
Either way, please let me know which one you like best! Here's #2:
PRIDE AND JOY
By Beth Carter
Sylvia took a long sip of chardonnay as she studied Tina’s perfectly manicured nails and designer shoes—the nails and shoes Sylvia had long envied.
“You know, I thought I had finally found the right guy.”
“We met at that new restaurant, ordered an expensive meal and drank a bottle of imported wine.”
“What’s wrong with that?”
Sylvia rolled her eyes. “Nothing. Everything was perfect until—”
Tina leaned forward. “Until what?”
“He offered to drive me to his yacht in his ‘pride and joy.’ When we got to the parking lot, he opened the door to THIS.”
