Discovered inside a friend's van - just curious what happened, and its identity.

Moved from Frass. We're actually going to save this one so we can add it to the description on the Info page. Hope that's ok with all.

Moved from ID Request.

ID has been provided, and the image isn't needed for the Guide. It will be visible here for 30 days until removed by the system.
