1967 427 corvette
A Chevy panel van
Ok after some rough math when dad was my age we were cruising around in either this:
That's me at the back looking like a goof
CSH, the red sedan was the last 6 seat Ford Falcon built before the major refresh. Amusingly it was actually built AFTER the new model production had started and only days before the new model was actually officially released. The reason was as it was a 6 seat sedan it was a special order and for some strange reason Ford decided to send it down the line mixed in with the new model.
I was in a van just like this only grey and white. Dad got it from an auction at his work. Full window like this too, so it wasn't a Pedobear Van....
Dad had one of these....only silver.
And Mom had

"You've seen it, you've heard it, and you're still asking questions?!?"
"Yeah, when do we go for a ride!?!?"
My dad was just getting out of the air cooled beetle phase then(they were getting harder to find with no rust then).
I think we would have been on our first Mk1 Rabbit. Probably around a 1976 or 77

"The Sebring is an extraordinary car. Ugly to behold and hateful to drive, it is not cheap, elegant, comfortable, practical, prestigious, clever, economical, luxurious, well designed, well thought out or, if the rental car I drove in America this year is anything to go by, especially well made either." - Jeremy Clarkson
Dad had a '83 Ford Ranger 5 speed lifted 6" on 35" tires.
Extended cab with the 2 jumpseats.
I would "learn to drive" it later, I was 12, he was hammered, we were on the point in Cape Hatteras
Not this exact one, but this is very close, his was green:
Mom had a volare wagon
Which died on the road with my brother and I in it at ages 2 and 5, so we got a used Aerostar
The short one, not the longer somehow uglier one
Well im 17. So my dad would be rolling around in this:
Not this exact one but very close. old cop car his dad surprised him with. The speedo went to 160 like it could ever get there. Called it the big white whale. Could sit in the back seat and reach all the way forward and not reach the front seat. don't make them like they use to!
I don't know much about my dad at all. I was raised by my grandparents, so when my grandfather was my age(28) he was driving a:

(sorry, it takes a long time for me to load pics on my comp)
Last year for the '50-'53 cranbrook. I was the first and only car he ever bought new. It was mostly mercurys after that(his current car is a '00 sable). The cranbrook, which he describes as having been a very reliable commuter, was t-boned and totalled.
