Listen y’all, there’s 500 horses under that hood. Let me fire it up and you can hear them gallop. He pushes the button on the dash and a giant roar erupts outside, the sound making its way into the cab through the windows. Rain on the hood from last nights rain wiggles, and then it starts to steam. We can feel the wave of heat coming off the engine block. A faint whiff of diesel gasoline blooms briefly, and then fades. The crystal clear air from the exhaust betrays the smell of diesel being completely burned off, but that smell fades now also. Climbing inside cab requires using the steps attached to the vehicle, and we ascend to the cab, like a royal climbing a platform to ascend to the throne. Royals we are in the cab, looking down.
