Austin Notes: Rear Ends

1. A generation–old Toyota Corolla in metallic chartreuse, with a bashed-in trunk whose dents look ripened with age—in the middle of the biggest dent, the bumper sticker MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.

2. Vanity license plate: PS 105. Holy Pelham Parkway, Batman, I went to PS 105, Bronx, about a hundred years ago! Is there someone commuting on Lamar who may have had Mrs. Martinson or Mrs. Eakley for teachers? Anyone with knowledge of this matter, please inform this site.
