Nevada Ramblers

Nevada Ramblers

August 1966. Our brand-new Rambler Cross Country wagon on its first road trip, parked at the corner of Taylor and H Streets in Virginia City, Nevada. My mother swills Kool-Aid, my father picks his teeth, my brother occupies the back seat, and I click off this Kodachrome slide. View full size.

A Penny For Your Dad's Thoughts

Could Dad be thinking, “What a good life, my family with me and a new car.” Life was much simpler back then.

[Actually it wasn’t. -Dave]

"Terrace View"...

Coffee-table book? PLEASE! Do it! I'll buy it!

The colors!

I weep for the passing of Kodachrome.

As Advertised

I'm starting to think tterrace is building up to a coffee table book. How else can you explain this lifetime of work? Maybe we could call it "Terrace View."

Rambler Wagon

This shot sure brings back memories for me. My dad worked at Rambler HQ in Detroit so I rode in many of those station wagons in the 1960's. Our family of six kids made lot's of vacation trips in the old Rambler wagons. My favorite seat was the rear facing back seat, which we kids considered to be prime seating! Dad, Are we almost there ?

Where's My Life Magazine?

This photo, perhaps redone in watercolor, looks exactly like an ad for this car in any magazine of the day! The composition, the prominent placement of the car (shown from its best angle), a breathtaking background, and two carefree adults as minor characters, perfect! A pretty darn impressive photo! - Kathleen

Motor vehicle advertising.

Kind of reminds me of Dinah Shore singing ...

See the USA.
In your Chevrolet.
America is asking you to call.

Drive your Chevrolet.
Through the USA.
America's the greatest land of all.

A nice shot, but it's the wrong make of vehicle!!
