Even though Ponyboy describes Dallas Winston as hard and cold and full of hatred, there are things that Dally loves in life. He loves to fight, having gained plenty of experience on the streets of New York City. He is proud of his jail record and the extensive file on him at the local police station. He likes driving Buck Merrill's T-Bird, and he

... always did like to drive fast, as if he didn't care whether he got where he was going or not.

He likes Cherry Valance, but he realizes that their differences--he is a greaser, she is a Soc--are too great for any lasting relationship. Perhaps most of all, Dally likes horses; Buck is his rodeo partner, and Dally also is a jockey--"the only thing Dally did honestly."
