Careful, John: in panel 1 you seem to be driving with your eyes closed, and in panel 3, just blank eyeglass lenses. And both Elly and April have those perfectly round speed-freak eyes.
So Little Miss I'm-Going-To-Be-Driving-In-Two-Years points out that the alleged fogey looks to be the same age as Dr. John. But I wouldn't count him out: after all, he did have flame-orange lettering in his word balloon in panel 6.
But meanwhile, what's Elly doing in that same panel? Is the car going at hyperspeed, forcing her to close her eyes? Is she sending a subliminal message to the other passenger: "My husband can outdrive your husband!" Or is she merely passing gas?
