    noun "an action or event serving as an introduction to something more important"

    I should really stop telling people that this is 'my brother's car'. The title's been in my name for years, so is the insurance and registration. For all intents and purposes, it's been mine since bringing it back to life after years of inactivity. But I still keep thinking it's my brother's car.

    Years before he had his aneurysm, before he even became a dad, this car was his baby. His big boy toy. This Prelude was to him what motorcycles are to me - an extension of ourselves.

    Our dad drove it for a few years before I took over, at least for as long as he could stand the low ride height and lack of suspension. Before he let it sit for years, he tried to "fix" the scratches on the body. His idea of a fix was to just spray black automotive paint over them, from a rattle can. It was one of those good deeds executed badly.

    I go back and forth on the idea of repainting this car, bringing it back to its former glory in honor of my brother. Because I do get a chuckle at my dad's handiwork everytime I see it. Maybe one day the clear coat will fade enough that I'll have no choice. Or maybe when one of my brother's sons takes me up on my offer to inherit his car.

    Their dad's car.

    My brother's car.
