Is a father-son relationship — viewed through the window of the family car. Written by Los Angeles playwright Jim Geoghan has been dubbed a "front porch play." “It’s a rite-of-passage story, a sweet comedic "memory play". Jim Geoghan, a seasoned playwright whose work has been commissioned by the Actor’s Theatre of Louisville, has received both Emmy and Drama Desk award nominations over the years. He has also written for Disney's "Suite Life of Zach and Cody." This play was based on his life and relationship with his own father.
"When I was very young, I thought he was amazing,” Jim stared. “As I got older, I discovered he was not so amazing and I let him know it. And when I got older, I discovered I was not so amazing, and I made it up to him before it was too late.”
 
The play follows Jim from the age of four when he steals his father’s ‘39 Ford and continues through coming-of-age vignettes that revolve around car conversations. His Dad’s experiences as a World War II bomber pilot become more significant as the story unfolds. “There is something wonderful about cars. You can have a conversation in a car because it’s a cocoon of sorts."
