|from American Cars|
My brother had a Jevelin, later a 1970-something Spider, later than that another Javelin and even later than that a Shelby Mustang. Another brother had a Dodge Dart. My first car was a 1982 Datsun 200SX, that I bought in 1995. It cost $500. I have 7 siblings. My parents had a ridiculous maxi van with a fiberglass top so you could stand up straight inside - my Dad is tall and he did not like to be inconvenienced. He had converted the whole thing so there were pull out bunkbeds inside, a pump sink, a porta potty, no seat belts, cabinets, under seat storage and a baby "crib" above the drivers & passengers seat. It looked a bit like this, only it was bright blue and white:
If I ever make another piece of art again, it will be to re-create this vehicle with my Dad. We went everywhere in this..the whole fam. So, when I saw this Etsy shop I couldn't help but feel a bit of nostalgia for a nicely photographed American car and my youth.
