blast from the past

September 21st, 2010 at 08:44 pm

Totally, deliriously off the fiscal topic. I think I saw a ghost in the newspaper website today. Take a look at the picture. I'm nearly certain that that was the car my boyfriend had in the late 1980's. 1960 pink Caddy. Tells you something when that car was the "compact" lady car in 1960. We lived maybe a 1/2 mile away from the Wallingford Dick's at that time. And who knows, that might have been me taking a little junk food break and ordering on the left. (Brown hair, jeans, white shirt).

Good times, good times. Except that I probably still haven't lost that pound that I gained eating the hamburger, tartar sauce, fries, vanilla shake.

And I still haven't gotten over the shock of seeing a three foot long raccoon dumpster diving at that Dick's. Not pictured. Big Grin

    haha. that is very cool. in the town my dad lives in there is a guy who owns a car that is almost exactly the same (i think it's pink too, actually). when I first saw it (about 8 years old I think) it was the first time i'd ever seen a car with left hand drive. lol Big Grin

    Wow I bet that thing had an even bigger back seat that DH's 1962 Chevy Impala that was his first car at age 16..... remember drive-ins?? Good times....good times...

    whitestripe - if there's a remnant of a AuH20 bumpersticker on it, it might have been ours. This car was the first and only time I saw a push-button transmission. Smile I think the ex-boyfriend sold it somewhere down the line. Whenever he drove it, he got offers to sell it.

    homebody - we joked that we could rent the back seat it was that big.

    My DH talked to the ex-boyfriend a couple of days ago. Ex reminded him that it was a GM car, but not a Caddy, that didn't look like him behind the wheel, no bumper stickers ... and the nicest thing: "...she was WAY thinner than either of the two people at ordering at the counter. Smile
