It was a couple of years ago but I did spot this one on I40 in New Mexico. They were rolling along at 60-65.

I don't have any pictures yet, but my camera is getting so old I have to put it under a light bulb to warm it up so I can use it.  :'(

I made a velcro strap to hold my phone and camera to my Rusty Bowtie beer can cooler. I'll have to talk to Tamara about possibly offering this modification in the store.  8)

Thanks Tom. It looks like it was a buick dealership, and when they closed the doors they forgot one. Now it's a time capsule.
