Vintage photos of:
My wife in 1957, just outside our apartment B-6, located within the Pine Grove Terrace complex for married students at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti. This apartment was just what we needed for our senior year in college. These apartments have since been razed. View full size.
Volkswagen camper on a picnic, Garden Canyon, Fort Huachuca, Arizona, summer 1962. This was a beautiful vehicle for exploring around Fort Huachuca and Sierra Vista, Arizona. View full size.
St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, 1966, and I'm hamming it up on my older brother's 1964 Honda 90, with our neighbour and close family friend on the rear. I had just received my driver's license and like all my buds, getting driving privileges at your 16th birthday was top priority. Without game stations, cell phones or the internet, surfing with wheels "in real time", like in American Graffiti, was a big part of the social scene. View full size.
Almost twenty years after Born to Be Wild: 1966 and I'm still riding two wheels. This time, with my wife on my 1967 650 c.c. BSA Spitfire, which I had just restored with the help of my motorcycle bud. This was taken by a friend in the next lane while we rode up the highway to Gatineau Park in Quebec, across the Ottawa River from Canada's capital Ottawa during a perfect fall day. Funny how this was considered a serious machine in the era, but today the output would be thought mediocre, but oh, the sound. View full size.
1000 Islands, Ontario, Canada. Two weeks ago I met the family of the lady who is standing next to the Hillman with the Dutch license plate; the owners of car emigrated to Canada in the fifties, bringing their car with them. View full size.
