    awesome photos...It reminded me of how times have changed, with the president riding high in a convertible. Even as late as 1980, when he was running for re-election, President Carter's advance people would have local Lions Club or Kiwanis volunteers drive some of the cars in the motorcade. My father drove one of the cars, press secretary, I think, when they came through Asheville, NC.

    Can you imagine that happening today, and how absurd it now seems?
