The Graceland Gates by Harold Lloyd

I picked this up at a flea market pretty cheaply. Not sure if it is or not, but it seemed like somewhat of a rare find. As far as the content of the book, wow! This book written by Elvis' cousin and longtime Graceland security guard (along with a co-writer), has to be the most…well…
With the exception of maybe one or two anecdotes, the book offers very little insight into Elvis and deals mostly with the various nut-jobs that skirted past the gates wanting to see Elvis. Alot of them claiming that they were in some way related to him. This book can be sort of a hoot in it's own unpretentious way. Below pic is from the back cover of the book. Can anybody I.D. the two people who are sitting with the pink jeep? I have no idea who they are.

The man next to the jeep is Travis Smith, Elvis' uncle.
