An '80s rock star and her classic 911
By Pablo Deferrari
She's walking out of the liquor store laden down with her handbag on one hand and a case of Pabst in the other. A couple of good ol' boys leaning up against a pickup truck nearby watch her. As she puts the case down to open the door on her 993, she looks up and notices them gawking at her. They make eye contact and then one of the guys bobs his head up and down with a smile and gives her a thumbs-up. This is just another ordinary day.
