Day Thirty-Four of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
Here's my 100-word contribution to day 34 of 41 Days of Metallicar ... a bit of John.  (Hope you enjoy it, Keeper!)

The Impala came cheap because it needed work. He was good with his hands, and by the time he finished the restoration job, the car was a rolling advertisement for his skill that brought new business into the garage. Didn’t hurt either that Mary thought it was beautiful when she saw it done. He was proud of it.
Pride died with hunting, along with so much else. It took his boys to give his pride back, pride in who they were and how they grew up. The car was just a tool, then.
Dean’s pride in her restored his own.

Yes, I love Big Daddy Winchester ... flaws and all.

And only one week to go to season four!!!!

*sigh* A perfect picture of an imperfect man.

His pride in her came with the joy of his life with Mary. When she was murdered, his focus narrowed so much. The Impala became a representative of the past life he had lost - yet he needed her, he needed her size and her safety for two little boys. However, unconciously, through her, he gave a home to his sons and the one most like Mary, the one who worked constantly to keep his family together, turned out to also be the one who took up caring for the home.

Thank you, Mary. You know how I love this little moments of John. I miss him so terribly.

John Winchester, while flawed, was a man who truly loved his family more than anything. He may have royally screwed up on (several) occasion(s), but in the end, he shaped those boys as beautifully as he did the Impala. I miss him.

Mary, I still say, hands down, your Classic Endurance is the best Impala origin story out there. This drabble makes an excellent addendum to it.

I'm not sure "addendum" is really the correct word, but I think you know what I mean
