Tire Change: 1973

Tire Change: 1973

The family was traveling on the interstate to Myrtle Beach in 1973 and the tire came apart on the good old '65 Rambler Classic Wagon. Luckily my dad had the spare ready to go. View full size.

Trunk Route: 1967

Trunk Route: 1967

My father steers our 1966 Rambler Classic station wagon through Sequoia National Park's Tunnel Log in this Kodachrome slide I took on our summer vacation in July 1967. But it wasn't the first time he'd driven a Rambler through a tree, however, an event seen previously here on Shorpy. View full size.

Eggstravaganza: 1972

Eggstravaganza: 1972

My niece and nephews were coming down for an Easter egg hunt, so that gave my brother, his wife and me an excuse to color some eggs for the first time since our own childhood. I made a caricature of my brother, another that was supposed to look like the Western Hemisphere, and at the bottom center in a sort of holiday mashup, an homage to one of our favorite vintage Christmas tree ornaments. The brown ones were made via the traditional onion skin method and some forgotten arcane process produced the blue-and-white mottled jobs. Paste-on printed features from an egg-dyeing kit are on two, and two more are named for their creators. All posed against the lawn at the family home in Idyllic Larkspurâ„¢, California and immortalized by me with this Polaroid snapshot. View full size.

Car Crash

Car Crash

My Grandpa was driving when some T-bird ran a light. My brother and I were in the back seat and we slammed into the front seats ripping the skin off our knees. Cars didn't have seatbelts back then. My Grandpa almost kicked it but recovered. We were only going about 40 mph. View full size.

I watched them film the show Dallas one time and Steve posed for a shot. He is very laid back and cool in person. Great actor I might add. View full size.

The show Dallas shot some scenes at my girlfriend's Dad's house east of Plano, Texas. Susan Howard was on the set that day and posed for a picture. She is a very good actor and very nice in person. View full size.

So Many Cars, So Little Time
