It's 1984. Sixteen year-old Brian Temple is getting his first car - a muscle car from the golden era of the sixties - a car as old as himself. A car means freedom, and membership in the car crowd at school. But Brian also has a secret life - one his friends are unaware of - Brian is gay. And now he is about to meet someone who will change his life forever.

This story really took me back to my youth and the way I felt about cars and life in general. Some people have commented it's a little heavy on the car terminology , but for me that was part of the appeal. There is some truly original descriptive writing in this story, especially where it comes to emotions and identification of another kindred soul. This is ultimately a feel-good story and well worth a read even if you aren't a car nut.

Response from the author:

The cars are characters in the story, pretty much. Many readers found the attention on the cars hard to deal with. But that's the way that car culture was in my teen years. You were known by your car, and the two of you were inseparable.

I'm always happy when a reader 'gets' this one, as it was written just for you. :)

Thanks!

I read this story when it came out. It has a lot of cool car things in it, but its about people, too. If you like cars you will like this story. And I bet you like the people too.
