  1. I was hoping to see myself in one of those pics. Oddly, the orange car strikes a memory. I don't know if there may have been more than one, considering the masses, but it's the only thing in these images that strikes a memory. I wonder where the tapes are for that event, I'm surprised no one's capitalized on it.
