Physical Description: Orange background with text printed in red and shades of light blue. Text reads: "On one occassion when I was walking Sunset Boulevard, an absolutely beautiful muted green car pulled up beside me. I had never seen anything like it before, but I learned it was a Jaguar XKE, and I recognized the young man who was driving it. For purposes of our story, we will call him Quint Vantage, since he is a well-known and highly successful actor whose success is largely dependent upon his air of machismo. "How far you going?" He called out. I took one look at him and answered, "All the way."
