It does look like that, but in reality, it was the lighting creating that effect. Cat had this horrid yellow lighting all around their exhibit, which made everything there look even more yellow. They should have stuck with a white lighting as it would have brightened everything else and made it all look better.

I can't see anything in the post above... Is that normal?

I wonder how many gallons of Armor-All it took to make the tires that shiny? Think
