While cruising in the Appalachians

You may wonder why this photo is on the Ada Icon. Every photo has a story. Here's the story behind this photo, and, yes, there's an Ada connection.

The Icon owners were on vacation last week. While returning to northwestern Ohio after a week in Georgia, this black Cadillac passed The Icon cruiser somewhere on Interstate 64  while in the Allegeny Mountains of Virginia close to the West Virginia state line. (Check out the panoramic photo. It shows a sign stating "Callaghan, Virginia.")

Check out the Virginia license plate on the vehicle: ONUGRAD. We figure if anyone can identify this proud Ohio Northern University alumnus, it's probably David Dellifield. But, it's anyone's guess.

Icon viewers suggestions are welcome. Two views are provided. One is rather scenic. The other is standard grainy enlargement.
