You know when I think of the Summer of 92, I think of all those movies I never saw and never will.

Nah, actually this shot makes me think of the ex-CHP ’84 Mustang LX I sold right afore I moved here…

That’s not really a boxy Ford Fairmont, it’s a boxy Mustang* LX. I had me one, with the same dog-dish hubcaps, bought at police auction, 90,000 miles. Sold it back in the ’90’s. I dressed up more back then, I was thinner too.

Anyway, this guy is rolling 1980’s-style – he really stands out from the crowd when you see him. Look for him on Larkin.

*But both were Fox platform rides and basically the same thing. Engineers from GM called this Mustang “the best damn Ford Fairmont ever built,” you know, as an insult.
