Folks living in any stable neighbourhood recognize their neighbours' cars, frequent visitors whether friends or family, and thus notice any unusual vehicle on the street so it was natural for me to wonder who was driving an older model faded blue-gray enclosed truck as it parked across the street. The vehicle's rear end had straight lines like a 1980 Jeep Cherokee, no gently rounded corners such as late model cars.
