In Wigwam #7 of the
Cozy Cone Motel,
Moabbey the Coyote sat hunched over his
Apple Power Mac G4 Cube. Using his mind to tune the 4-D
display was not easy. When his eyes began to cross, he had to turn away.
"Have you seen Plush Kokopelli lately?" he asked. Almost at once, both Silver Girl and Coney the Traffic Cone answered, "He is out back testing Jack Kerouac's 1937 Ford Sedan for a trip to Wigwam Village #2 in Cave City, Kentucky".
Ignoring the comment about his literary hero, Jack Kerouac, Moabbey mused, "Well that explains why Plush Kokopelli is appearing again in several places at once. Part of my computer display shows him outside here in Holbrook, Arizona. Part of him appears at Mammoth Mountain, California, giving a live snow report and just a bit of him is at Wigwam Village #2 near Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky".
At that, Silver Girl snickered. "Moabbey, if you would look up from that display occasionally, you would know that Plush Kokopelli is out back, here at Wigwam Village in Holbrook. He is visualizing a road trip to Kentucky".
"Kentucky? Why would Kokopelli, the Ancient Spirit of Arizona drive an old Ford jalopy from one end of Old-66 to the other?" Moabbey asked.
Then, Coney the Traffic Cone chimed in. "Don't you know? When Plush Kokopelli returned to Arizona, he identified that derelict 1937 Ford sedan out back. Through five-dimensional analysis, Plush Kokopelli determined that it is the actual car mentioned in Jack Kerouac's novel, 'On the Road'. In the book, Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty drive that Ford all the way to Mexico City. When Sal falls ill in Mexico City, Dean abandons him and drives the old Ford back here. When the engine seized, he abandoned it. Since then, the car has been rusting away out back of the Wigwam Motel, right here in Holbrook, Arizona".
"That's crazy", said Moabbey. "How could it be the same car as in the novel?"
