I can see a single first gen COUGAR, 8th car back, in front of the VW bug, to the passenger side aft of the Chevy truck with three occupants.  I can not see the second cat.  Is that a COBRA in front of the COUGAR?

    No, that's the real "cat" in the picture!    (I think so if I'm seeing it correctly anyway)    :o

     And that's sort of a cat, relation, a distant cousin from the families dark side nobody talks about, at least in public anyway.        ::)

Before the upper deck roadway was added. Many think the upper deck was always there.  It was added just before the 84 Olympics.

    Definitely, not a cat, solely an impersonator!      ::)
