Saw a restored red 1965 GTO convertible with a black top on I 80 today about mile marker 201 in Iowa. Brought back memories of the Righteous Brothers doing Youve Lost That Lovin Feeling on the 8 track. Buddy had a 65 but it was yellow with a black interior.

I wouldn't worry about the people... from the linked article:
Quote:
The St. Petersburg Fire Rescue posted on Twitter there were no injuries in the crash on Interstate 275, but the camper was hanging "precariously over the guard rail."
That must have been an interesting incident, to get the trailer over the guard rail while still intact, with trailer and tug both still upright. Where's the dashcam video when you want it?
