I was on my lunch hour driving to a restaurant when I spotted a car with red and white stripes on the trunk. I sped up to it driving through a red light. Sure enough, it was a flag car! The owner saw the burning towers from Shippan Point, a peninsula on Long Island Sound on 9/11. He felt moved to show his support for the country by painting his classic car like a flag. He also had a tattoo done.
