John Irving, Sean Penn, and Ed Ruscha bear some degree of likeness to one another facially, the latter two in particular. This has something to do with pointy features. I love the two gas-station books, though I own neither. I do own Los Angeles at 25 Miles an Hour, or something like that, obviously inspired by the other two. An interviewer asked Ruscha this question: "What kind of car would you like to see brought back from the '60s or '70s?" His answer is the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. I like no cars from the '70s. If it had to be the '60s, then I'm still not sure. From the '50s, though, I'd pick a 1955 Cadillac, a 1957 Pontiac, a 1957 DeSoto, an immediate post-war Studebaker, a Packard Clipper, and many, many more.
