Car cousins

South west bound
Driving through the backroads
Blemishes skill
Holding the steering
Colleagues and Cousins

Alike in thought
Education and Profession
Interests the same
Character identical
Honest and integral

Fathers best friends
Mothers greater buddies
From the same family
Thanks to the Grannies
Siblings to each

Pedal to the metal
Ripping through the South
No one on your trail
Just got a mission at stake

Forget the brakes
Push the pedal
Keep the diesel flowing
Put that foot down and give it a go

Final destination
Before time
Rubbers burning
Gears changing

Gene Hackman in French connection
Steve McQueen in Bullit
Charles Bronson in Violent City
Burt Reynolds in White Lightning

Done it all
Done it before
Travel the same path
100 miles plus
Engine full of wrath

5th gear release
Lowest to 4th
Shift between the 2
3rd is for amateurs

Find the RPM
Release the clutch
Control the launch
0 to 100
And out of sight
You're gone

The Rockford turn
Missed the bend
Back in 4th
Zoom past the roads

Heal & Toe
Blip the throttle
Hit the break
Find the RPM
Same foot
Shows the experience

Turbo charge the car
Use the gas from the exhaust
Spin the turbine
Compress the air
Increase the power

Grip the surface
Dont loose the traction
Push the envelope
Hear the metal

Negative camber
Flush the car
Slam low
Scrape the ground

Rotate the shaft
Increase the torque
Roads at a fork
Taxi down to a fault

Racers not ricers
Taxiing on the highway
Jetting past the speedway
No one in the way
Sound of the engine
Boeing in take off position

Enjoyed the ride
Driving skill a matter of pride
Driving and Navigation
An art worth celebration

Greatest pleasure
Easily lured
Taking the back seat
Evidence the feat
Feel the heat

To life added 1
A new dimension
Very few possession
Skill and exgpl
Dynamite explosion
