WOLF Is One Of Us - Donna Darkwolf's 'Precious Beast'
Donna Loved her WOLF. Mercedes A170 Avantgarde - with racing gearbox and
racing suspension. The first evening we brought WOLF to his new home...
7 November 2007… We had a Welcome Home drink with WOLF in his
new home. We immediately washed WOLF Free, of all the hands who had ever
touched him. Washed WOLF's "Eye", WOLF's hood star with champagne... and
celebrated WOLF... engine purring, eyes ablaze.
When ever WOLF and I are driving fast in the country, I play this piece
of music - WOLF at 160 / 170. Love it. You can hear the pace of a wolf
This is NOT a “car”.
This is NOT “My car”.
This is NOT “a vehicle”
This is “WOLF” - or - “THE WOLF” - or - “The Wolf-Mobile”
"WOLF is One of Us! A Free Spirit! Just Like Us." She proclaimed,
"One of Us" composed by Ivan Torrent was released in 2014. Seven years
after Donna and I brought WOLF home.
I found it in April 2019, while I was revamping Donna's site. Funny how
WOLF dances through the traffic - urgently seeking the freedom and exhiliration
of the Open Road.
And if you listen... you hear the urgency to get going... the acceleration...
the break-check to stop... idling... and immediate acceleration on take-off.
With his 6-speed racing gear-box Donna ordered at purchase, this shiny
Darkwolf was her pride and joy.
We kiss our two fingers and caress them across WOLF’s Hood Star with a
kiss of gratitude, every time we get in for the first time of the day,
and the last time we depart for the night.
WOLF has protected us against danger, all these Years. And we protect
WOLF... WOLF is One of Us.
We had to wait almost three weeks to do a ceremony under a Full Moon.
Under a Full Moon on 24 November 2007 - WOLF was Blessed by Donna on our
Four Fires – one at each point of the Compass, so that he will know his
way, and 13 big candles, set all around in a circle – fluttering in the
The Roman God, Mercury, The God of SPEEDINESS… fleet of foot, the Messenger
of Jupiter, is WOLF’s God.
Blessed by Fire.
Washed with Ice, under a FULL MOON
18 days after we fetched him HOME on Wednesday
24 November 2007
Saturday night, 24 November. Shiny, Dark and Glittering in the
Full Moon… Baptised in Fire
Engine running and head lights blazing – WOLF purred – and we listened.
Donna sang to Our WOLF: "He is One of Us", she would say while she lovingly
washed WOLF on the front lawn on any given Sunday morning - "I Love WOLF!"
I love WOLF almost as much as I love my shiny wife… Donna Darkwolf
They are The SAME SPIRIT.
I still feel Donna's spirit molded into WOLF.
The Ghost in The Shell. I dream of WOLF on many a night.
One Of Us - WOLF is the Only One I Trust Now.
Donna's "Precious Beast"
Not a single "event" in 11 years. Couple of scratches... by Donna as her
judgement was decreasing. She did not want to drive WOLF for fear of causing
damage to her precious... all "Cleaned and Healed"
With a close-ratio racing gear-box, WOLF is Fast and Nimble...
Taking gaps in city traffic is a "One-Two" dance, and WOLF is "Gone".
Open Freeway > 170 - 180... even I am not stupid enough to push it!
I Love WOLF.
More than I love most people
WOLF deserves Love. And Respect.
When I go to Europe, I am taking WOLF to drive on the Nordschliefer, at
Nurenbergring, where all the new car models on the planet are tested by
If your new car design can survive Nurenburgring - it goes into production
- and ends up on the show-room floor. One of WOLF's ancestors was tested
A Dream Holiday. WOLF and Me at Nurenbergring! LOL
26 Nov 2019. 871 Days since Donna. Do the Math?
8 + 7 + 1 = 16 AND 6 + 1 = 7 I collected Donna's Ashes on
I did not plan this. The service booking was generated automatically by
WOLF's on-board computer to the Mercedes Benz Service Plan. I found out
by e-mail. With a description of all WOLF's Service "B" requirements. The
bill of R5984.90 totals down to
8. The number in WOLF's plate.
Donna's kisses and our 'kiss-fingers-and-touch' have worn the blue enamel
off WOLF's Star, I got him a new one. This one is now affixed to the dash
The Ghost in The Shell
More than a Machine. When I am driving WOLF, I can feel the Ghost in the
Almost as if WOLF is the embodiment of Donna's spirit.
I cannot define it...
Nor can I adequately describe it... "WOLF has Donna's Spirit in his Shell"...
And, just as Donna, WOLF can sometimes become Unstoppable...
