    On the blue car, the roofline is distinctive. It was only used by GM during the '65 and '66 model years. It was only used on full size 2 door models and even then, as far as I can tell, only on Chevy and Olds models. The trunk lid appears to come to a point and the tail lights look to be set into the end of the fender vertically. That eliminates the Chevys, which were straight across at the trunk and had the tail lights arranged horizontally. Looking at pictures of Olds full sizes for the 2 years, the only ones I found to have the same tail light arrangement were the 1965 Delta 88 and the 1965 Starfire. Links to pics below.

    The lime green car in the pic, I think, is a VW Beetle. Hard to certain with the picture so blurry. The other one has so much chopped off, I have no idea.
    I agree on both counts. I was guessing the blue car to be a Cutlass, but you're right, the taillights are wrong. The yellow/green car is definitely a Beetle.

    In one of those weird cases of synchronicity, it seems while one of our posters was commenting about Carlene Brown, the Rawlins paper finally! ran a story about that bizarre summer when four girls went missing.
    Snipped.

    Despite the apparent lack of coverage at the time, Banker was actually the fourth missing person in Rawlins in seven weeks.

    The others were likely visitors to the area.

    Carlene Brown and Christy Gross, 19, of Bowdle, S.D., were last seen at Rawlins’ Little Britches Rodeo on July 4, 1974. Gross’ remains surfaced Oct. 27, 1983, three miles north of Sinclair.

    I think this is probably the man LE suspected in '91. He is a bad un for sure.

    from the above link: On March 31, 1990, Clegg abducted the victim as she was walking in town, took her to a remote area, and sexually assaulted her. He then drove to another location, where he murdered and buried her. Clegg used a tire iron to beat the victim and then drove a vehicle over her. The car used in the crime was borrowed from one of Clegg's friends.

    Where was this guy when Gloddy went missing, that's exactly what her sister said the perp did to her in the video I linked yesterday: drove a car over her after she was murdered! Good grief, their can't be two people with that MO is there?

    There are a couple of women missing from that area in the right time frame. Carlene Brown and Christy Gross, both 19 at the time, went missing from a rodeo in Rawlins in 1974. Christy's body was found a few miles away almost 10 years later; Carlene has never been found. I couldn't find a picture of Christy anywhere, but I'm attaching Carlene.
    Maybe it's just me, but these pictures look like they're from a beach to me. Not the desert. There are beach chairs in the picture and the girls are putting their shoes back on like they just came up from walking barefoot along the beach. Also, this picture from the Seattle connection goes with it, which clearly shows a male figure with a towel heading down to the beach. So I think they're in the sand dunes above a beach, anyone else? Does anyone recognize this beach?

    I wouldn't say sand dunes -- more like a rocky, dusty cliff.

    Beaches can be at lakes or reservoirs as well as the ocean. The vegetation in the picture that includes the parking lot doesn't look like oceanside vegetation, either east coast or west.

    Yes, and I believe that one of the pictures in this 'series' clearly shows what looks to be a lake in the background. (The picture with the female in the blue shirt in the forefront).
    .... ....... My posts are my opinion, only.

    There are pictures taken both at beaches and lakes in this collection. I guess it's just me, the steps actually remind of a beach I've been to, where we had to park up above and then take the steps down, but I can't put my finger on it.

    There are a number of beach accesses similar to these steps in southern California. I used to spend my summers near San Diego and there were some access points that had parking above the beach. As most of the beach front in California is privately owned (not the actual beach, but the property leading up to high tide or was in the 1970s I believe) , you had to access the beach in public access points. Torrey Pines near Del Mar, has (or had) and parking lot across from the beach. It wasn't on a cliff, but you had to cross the road to get to the beach. They have places like this in Oregon where you have to climb down to the beach too.

    Who wears long sleeves to the beach, especially in the summer? And these girls are well tanned, which says to me they don't normally wear turtlenecked long sleeved shirts. They were both wearing long sleeves. They struck me as going for a hike rather than going to the beach, and maybe winter time in CA??

    It can be cold at the beach if it is windy. I lived in northern Calif. for a number of years and it was always cold at the beach, too cold to swim or anything.

    Heck they're dressed too cool for Oregon Beaches other than possibly the month of August.
