Hahaha, lol, sorry but I went to USC very briefly (ATO-FTW!) just not an alumn! My wife graduated the Keck Schoold of Medicine and I ended up CSULB and majored in Administration of Justice/Criminal Justice. Wanted to be an FBI agent...

A little off topic but...I've never understood why USC folks feel the need to shorten their own acronym? SC makes me think of South Carolina.

OK, carry on.

while I was following you, I could totally tell the difference with the Euro trunklid--it looks waaaay better!

here are my pics:

this is probably my fav from the entire shoot:






and, I tried to do some playing around with HDR, but they didn't come out so good...
