FELLOW TRAVELERS POSTSCRIPT (1959)

by

Two weeks after the Jocko’s Porting Service streamliner knocks the drag racing world off its axis, it implodes. Reasons given were “downforce versus insufficient substructure.” Besides being the only streamliner that ever really accomplished something profound on the drag strip, really, the Jocko-liner had ALL the elements: Completely avant garde, yet thoroughly functional. A hep cat driver named “Jazzy Jim.” Low ET of the Universe. Cover of DRAG NEWS. Then it self-destructs two weeks later.

I mean there’s your folklore. So ripe it can make one itch.
