Nostalgic Pics Thread
 
We have a Factory Photos thread.
We have classic sales brochures.

There's a thread like this in the 67-72 trucks area of this forum,
so I was thinking we need a thread of pics of our trucks that give you that Nostalgic feeling.

So,
Post pictures that give you that Nostalgic feeling.

I'll start with these from the 4x4's Gone Wild thread:

They know the dude in the cab....Ya' can imagine what was said (in dog-speak) just before the ol' guy eased into the water...."if we start out up here against the cab, we might still be in the box when he shuts her down on the other side..."

The Older dog looks like he's done this before and knows to stay down.

The younger black and white dog appears to be holding on for dear life. :lol:

I've posted these before, but since the subject came up again..... :)

The first pic is my '62 in about 1975... it belonged to my cousins.

The second and third pics are in 1982... it was my brother's truck at the time. He had just painted it his senior year in his autobody class at the VoTech in Henderson, Nevada... :ito:

Interesting. I don't think I've ever seen a "cabover" shell before. :lol:

This photo was taken in 1970 by my dad of his then new Buick GS. Excuse the quality it was a Polarioid picture. What’s more important is he captured an image of the 1962 long bed fleetside purchased new by one of our neighbors. It had the deluxe chrome package and a bright aluminum grille. By the time this photo was taken he’d obviously added a camper shell:

http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/5...0buickgs02.jpg

The parents had just spent over $2,000 repairing their 54 Oldsmobile sedan, and it still came home on a tow hook. It went bye-bye, and the dad got the brand new truck shown. The mom came home with a brand new 1962 Impala 2 door hardtop. His truck was the first one I’d ever seen purchased by someone I knew, and hers was the first new car I’d ever seen with bucket seats and a floor shift. I never owned a camera back then so no pics of her car. We thought they were the coolest parents ever. In 1966 they bought their 17 year old son a black inside and out 1964 Impala SS 327/4 speed. It remains the coolest “new” car I've ever seen.

This photo was taken in the early 80’s. It was a former show truck owned by the local bachelor barber shop owner. The grille, bumpers, cowl vent, steps, and everything under the hood received fresh chrome. It had the 73 bed and was the most beautifully finished truck I’d ever seen at that time. He always came to work early and parked in that exact spot (in front of his store) for years.

My first 1965 Chevy Truck. I lowered her by cutting coils up front and using coil compressors in the rear. Photo taken in Galveston, Texas - West Beach in 1977. I was 17yo. Been a 65' and RUSH fan ever since!
