    I can just hear the crowds bursting out in song … can you?…. like in the movie Pepe (1960) or The Music Man (1962)!

    Barney … I’m afraid I don’t know either movie. But, it looks like quite the celebration!

    Dave, this photo does bring a smile to me. I see the photo being presented to a class to write an essay on. And it reminds me of one of my favorite Jeep memories: Stationed with the Navy in Stockton CA in 72-76, several WAVES wanted me to drive them to Oakland Alameda NAS to visit their friends. They all piled into my brand new 73 CJ5 with the top down. I remember more there being more girls than seats.
