December Signature Feature: Melvyn Ford by Carlos Hazday



Nostalgia, family, and the many generations coming together is often a theme around the holidays. I didn't want to feature another holiday story right now, though, since I'm sure readers can find plenty of those to enjoy! I wanted to bring those themes forward that are so common in a new way, so I searched and found this great short story by Carlos Hazday that pays homage to... the family car.

Length: 3,249

Description:  A 1929 Ford Model A Tudor, bought at the start of the Great Depression, is passed from father to son through four generations. Through the decades, Melvyn Ford is a silent witness to joy and sorrow. The car plays a role at family births, weddings, and deaths.

A reader said: This is an absolutely wonderful story. Seeing something cherished and passed on through the generations of the family will bring a smile to your face. I may be biased towards Carlos' writing, but I highly recommend this story. ~ WolfM

I also read this story back when it first came out. It's one of my favorites that I reread every so often. The premise is hokey, yet @Carlos Hazday , even early in his writing career, treats it with such care that he brings it off brilliantly.
