> "Dennis Flagrante, the flamboyant, weekend drag queen that worked during the week as a monument man, a purveyor and carver of tombstones, named his Chevy "The Grim Reaper." It had a real big engine and a lot of other really cool hot rod stuff that this Omniscient Narrator knows very little about.
