Last night Judy was flipping through a bunch of digital pictures on her computer trying to find baby pictures so she could compare Gwenny against Kristina when they were newborns… cool idea, and they do look the same! What got my interest was looking at the screen and seeing a picture of one of my old cars… wow… instant memory flash!
I took a look through the whole folder and found a few of my old cars… check them out!
No particular order here…
One of my favourites to drive was this 1993 (I think) Ford Thunderbird. We lived in Sudbury at the time, and bought this brand new. We owned it for 12 months and it had 13 major problems during that time, so off it went! We are picking it up at the dealership here…
This was Judy’s car during the 80’s… it is an Oldsmobile, just cannot remember the model… it was standard shift, and not a bad car… parked outside our house in Alliston. Remember, I was a Banker, we got around!
By far my most favourite car of them all! I bought this around 1971 or 72, and it is a 1966 Ford Mustang. I only owned it for a couple years, and might have driven it a bit hard… OK, maybe real hard at times… but it was a lot of fun and looked cool! I think I got $200 for it when I traded it in… had I only known!!!!!!!! Check out the hippy standing in front of the Mustang…Oh, wait, that’s me!
This was another real fun car to drive, I think it is 1984 or 85, Chev Camaro. 5 speed shifter in this baby with a great sound system in it. Both our kids were real small and all the neighbours gave me a bunch of grief about this being our “Family Car”… bought it brand new.
Judy bought this Suzuki Side Kick brand new in the 90’s… great little buggy… she later traded it in for a new 4 door model! Ya, I know, we are out on the lake, in Sudbury they freeze solid!!!!
Now check out these two fine cars parked in front of the 1st home we ever bought, which was in Orillia. That is a 1975 Chev Malibu up front that we bought brand new for $4,000.00. Kept it for 12 years! Great car. That is about a 1970 or so VW parked behind… what a beast! Just a second car at the time. It ran. The VW’s had no heat what so ever in them, and I remember being pulled over by the Police for having frosted windows in the front, but the Officer knew me from the Bank so he let me go!
Below is my 1972 Datsun 1200 Fastback! I traded in my 1966 Mustang on this… still wish I had that Mustang! That little Datsun was fun! Went like stink! They would only sell you one if you had long hair!
Here is another view of that 75 Malibu, and I have a little helper here… Dr. Shawn. Looks like the cat was trying to escape.
In the 1990’s, we bought 4 different Pontiac Sunfire’s. This is one of them, at Meat Cove, up on Cape Breton. We bought all the Sunfire’s new, the Dealership loved us!
Check out the 1993 Jeep Cherokee below, I bought it used, with 240,000 Klms on it, and used it for over 100,000 more! What a Jeep!
This is one of Judy’s Sunfire’s below… nice black one and Judy loved the standard shift!
Judy drove this brand new Chevette, she called it her “Vette”. It was a good one…
I think that is a 1977 Dodge Dart that Shawn is in front of in Mount Forest… all the Neighbours called it Judy’s “Dodge Dart Trans Am” at the time. It was bullet proof.
Below is another VW we owned, while living in Hanover. This one, I actually did the green paint job on… not bad… eh! The Dr. is looking a little young here. The Dr. called this car “Fe Fe”.
These are only a few of the cars we had over the years… don’t know if I have pictures of the rest or not!
Boiling hot here today, and the kids just arrived to have a swim in the pool! Perfect!
