“Whenever my car was parked in front of my cafe, the grownups liked to drop in for a drink or for some fried chicken. They knew that if my car was parked out front, I was inside and they wanted to talk to me about the color and, more than anything else, about how much it had cost. The kids stayed outside, staring at it and reaching over to touch the pink fenders or the black leather seats. That car was the Hope Diamond of Harlem. Everybody had to see it or touch it or both to make sure it was real.”
