7. Another roof airbag. This one’s saying, “good luck red car!” Like when the bags fall all over the place. I think this is a great opportunity for red car to practice their safe passing skills…

13. We had RideShare in Phoenix – just like these boys have here in northern Africa. Scenery looks about the same, too. Only it’s hotter in Arizona. What kind of truck is that? An old Cruiser? Looks sweet.
