Dunno, but it's telling of my age that when I look at that photo, I'm far more interested in the ice cream than the girl.

At first, I saw a planter full of roses, and that caused me to guess the region. I'm counting that as a correct guess.

The race referenced is the Big Bend open road race and it still hapeens annually.

If this hadn't been associated with the regional magazine, I would have guessed it was a Baskin-Robbins advert.

I assumed it was a state known for its dairy products.

Let's all play "Find the Banana."
It reminds me of the cover of the Tijuana Brass album "Whipped Cream and Other Delights"

@tadchem - That was the album cover that I discovered that I was heterosexual. Next was the National Geographic.
