August Break: Hot Child in the City

Photobucket

I saw this car and it took me back to sneaking into the Drive-In Movie, waiting in line for gas, trying to move like The Solid Gold dancers, begging my mom for clogs, playing our "Disco" pinball machine in the basement with with song "Pinball Wizard" playing in my head, and our awesome yellow AMC Pacer that I thought looked like a lady bug . . . so many fond memories of the late 70's.

Oh my gosh...memories for me too. Those were my two favorite cars when I was around 10 years old, the Gremlin and the Pacer.

oh my lord....
i had this car....well, at least i drove it....

all of my childhood years, my dad owned a dodge chrysler dealership and all the used cars we got to drive once we got our license...we could pick anything off the lot...because he loved us and we were girls.

oh the memories :)

Is that a new car and do they still make them? Goodness, I haven't seen one of those in eons. It's got to be an antique!

You know, I used to think a Gremlin was the ugliest car ever made. Now, I think they are kind of retro cool and fun. My, how times change.

I don't know about the Gremlin, but I sure miss the drive-in movies. Good times!
