RETRO MOM

ok here she is...and had to wait to post these images until her tag came....
This is "Trixie"... my 1972 Chevy "Townsman" wagon...and no Tim, this does not mean I want to sell "Kermit"....

She has been getting driven daily and she will, at least until the snows come. Admittedly, she makes running the daily errands a slightly more festive event...and secondly, my minivan which has been tired for some time, is now experiencing major technical difficulties...but I'll save that unglamorous story for another time or venue...

I grew up with old cars all around -- some of you have experienced "The Obsolete Fleet" in action -- Trixie is just the newest member....

And yes, the Nixon bumper sticker is for real, but it is from the '68 campaign...it just looks good if not completely authentic in the time line...

rolling....xxoo Jen
