My first Car for Writers Cramp

My first Car

I recall the first car
I ever owned
The car’s name was the Pony

It was a Korean made car
The first Hyundai model
It was an automatic
not a stick shift
It was back in 1983
In South Korea,

What a trip we took
In that pony
Once we drove
Up a very steep hill.

In the deep countryside
And we were so glad
The Pony made it.

It what locals call
An airplane rode
As only a plane can get
To the top
As it is so steep.

The price of gas
Was expensive in Korea
Perhaps 4.00 US dollars.

We sold the car
A year later
And bought a Cadillac
On base when I taught
At the U.S. base

And gas there
Was 2.00 a gallon.

Use the following title for your poem or short story:
My First Car

Use the following words in bold
stick shift
what a trip
price of gas
car's name

The Hyundai Pony (Hangul: 현대 포니), was a small rear wheel drive automobile produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai from 1975 until 1990. The Pony was South Korea's first mass-produced[1] and exported car. The Pony nameplate remained in use until 2000 on some export versions of the Hyundai Excel and Accent.
