Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. The Challenge – write a one hundred word (plus or minus) story with a beginning, middle, and end inspired by the picture. The Key – make every word count.
The picture is worth a thousand words. These are another one hundred.

Fisher Fleetwood and The Fins
Like ostriches they raise their hoods slightly. The bright orb drops below the land line. In a succession so quick it seems simultaneous the Cadillacs lift up, stretch their wheels, and rest horizontal on the warm earth. The few with lights still intact inspect the new colors that appeared as they lay dormant through the brightness. Satisfied with the mutations, they circle around the 1949 and lower their frames to the ground. The 1949 joins them momentarily, then moves forward. The remaining join to form a line, and they observe the highway, nostalgic of their sounds and motions of yesteryear.
