The car belongs to Jonny’s grandfather. It’s a beautiful, classic car. Jonny is hoping that his grandpa will give it to him someday. Jonny is driving. His grandfather is in the car, too. Jonny is sixteen and is hoping to get his driver’s license. They live in the area and they are going to go for a drive on Route 66. That’s a popular road. It winds on forever and the possibilities are endless. But they get a flat tire. They will go to Clay’s Service Center. Jim will fix it. They need the business. “Well, there is always the unexpected in life, such as flat tires,” says Grandpa. He’s the wise one. Jonny wouldn’t think of that. Jonny only thinks of ballgames. The tire went flat because they picked up a nail. That should be an easy fix. If they had tools in the trunk, they could have fixed the car. Or, they had to have a spare. But the spare was flat, too. So, they were glad that Clay’s Service Center was close by. Jonny is hoping they will get to the ball game on time. He is the star pitcher! He knows that they’ll probably go out for fast food afterwards with the team. His friends will be very impressed with a classic Pontiac car. Back on the road, Grandpa warns Jonny not to go too fast. But he did anyway. They hear a siren and come to a traffic jam. They see a lot more cars around them. They hear more sirens. And, horns are blowing – “Get out of my way!” There is the smell of gas and burning rubber. It’s summertime, baseball season. It is warm. They are going to be late. “I told you so,” says Grandpa. “Not my fault”, says Jonny. “There is a turnoff on the road ahead and maybe we can still make it,” says Grandpa. Before the road, on the other side, is the car that ran into the sign and is blocking the road. They are able to make the turnoff. Jonny’s hopes soar. Maybe they WILL be able to make the game. And, just maybe, the car will be Jonny’s. As they pull into the game Jonny’s team cheers! Their pitcher has arrived driving a beautiful, classic Pontiac. Grandpa says, “Jonny, someday the car will be yours.” Jonny is hoping for that car and it will be a big surprise when it comes.
