I like the other one you posted better. It was cuter with more character.
But been there did that with the Old caddy thing in college. Had a 1970 convertible caddy that I sported with Dire Straits blaring..."That ain't working..."

so ron... how much colder was it 95 ft in the air than on the ground? nice to see they gave you a jeep grand cherokee to safely land on, and 2 supervisors to tell you how you are not doing it correctly. hands off management i suppose.
