about this story

I was strolling down the street of old town San Francisco, California on vacation from Israel. I passed many old shops that were selling old movies for a great price. As I strolled past all the crumbling walls I stumbled onto an old car show. I strolled through looking at all of the old cars when I realized it was actually an auction. I was thrilled to buy a car that I could bring back to Israel. I came upon a red 1970 Ford truck. The wind blew and I knew that this was the car for me. I walked up to the stand to get my ticket to try to get this truck. I had to pay a small fee, but it was nothing compared to the dream truck that I was just going to get. I walked to my seat to wait for my truck to come up for bidding. The cars passed and the cars sold, but I was determined to get that red Ford truck. The sun was setting and a chill came into the air. I was tired of waiting, but then there it was. I took my seat again and waited. The bid started out at 20,000 dollars. I was a little worried about how much I would spend, but I was still determined. Then it went up again to 50,000 dollars. The sweat started to drip down my face because I was only going to spend 50,000 dollars. As I waited to get the truck it went up to 60,000 dollars. I was devastated that I could not afford the truck. As my sorrow filled up my soul, I stayed and waited till the car action was over. Then I saw it, my new dream car, a green Rolls Royce Phantom from 1953. It was love at first sight. I was more eager to get this beauty than I was the Ford truck. I would even go bankrupt to have this car. The starting bid was at 50,000 dollars. I put my ticket in the air and waited for the bid to go up. However, no one was there that wanted to bid. They had all left after the Ford was sold. I was filled with joy. I had finally purchased my dream car to bring back to Israel. In the end, I was riding in luxury down the streets of Israel.
