    A New 'Alternative' Vehicle:

    I saw that red Plymouth in WI dells a couple of summers ago.
    In fact, I'd almost bet money that it was that exact car with the same two guys in it.
    They look exatly like the two trailoring the plymouth through the dells.

    Not only do I remember them, there's a guy about 2 miles away from me that owns one just like this one & in just as good as shape.
