Mara's first car purchased in 1965. No original photo of car so Mara managed to find one in the archives
Mara's Pontiac Parisienne was a dusty pink.. Quote by Mara...
I just loved that car.. although parallel parking was a tad tricky.

That its Mara.. Wow do you know how proud of this first car. I recall although petrol was so cheap. Goodness, i spent my life asking my mom for 50cents to put some petrol in.
The engines in these cars I even knew where the radiator and battery and to check the oil was. Now these new car the engines are compact and most are computerised.

We had a woman here that had a diesel car. She said fill up(she was at one of the diesel pumps with other pumps around.) Oi they put super in . She had to have to car towed away. The Toyota dealership had to drain the petrol out and clean the fuel pump

Cars/Vans/Bikes etc. Past and Present. 1953-Chevrolet
This was similiar to my dads car. lol bwana and I bought it from him when we got married (1972)and dang we could not afford to put petrol in it. We sold it to bwana's one sister so that was about 1974. They drove it for ages
I know my dad had to put a new engine in it as one year going on holiday to Port Elizabeth the engine seized
I loved the gears on the steering column. It was really a Drive in car
I dont know if you had a huge place where you went to watch movies you used to pay at the gate. go to a nice spot. Park next to a speaker hook it on the window and watch a movie.

We were taken to the "DRIVE IN movies" every saturday. BUt only saw what my dad likes the old westerns. But my sisters and I did not mind , cos at least we were going on an outing.
My dad had to always park in the front row. The lovers lane was the back row

I want that car, Captain Nemo - what a beauty!!!

Can understand why you really loved your pretty blue car, Honeybee - it must have been like driving around on a sunny day, even when rain was falling.

No 'drive-in' movies, Tanooma! - oh gracious, that was part of being teenager Cars/Vans/Bikes etc. Past and Present. Icon_biggrin ... and how well I remember the back rows being 'reserved' for lovers - eek! When going out on a date and heading to the drive-in, wondering all the way there whether my date would try parking in the back row and how well he'd taken it when I insisted he move up - huge laugh!

The Drive-In was an institution all right. Actually, there is still one that I know of in operation here. I took Michaela and a friend of hers a few years back, and I really think that I should go again. Doubt that I could talk Honeybee into coming though Cars/Vans/Bikes etc. Past and Present. Icon_cry

It's wonderful having photos to look at when reading and responding to threads - and thanks so much for adding your lovely one, Honeybee!
--------------------------

Well ... since grown ups 'don't and never have' you-know -what Cars/Vans/Bikes etc. Past and Present. Icon_biggrin ...Michaela and her friend would likely be horrified if you and Honeybee insisted on having the back seat during the movie? Huge grin!

I have a soft spot in my heart for Austins ... in the 1960s, I bought a used Austin Cambridge 'wagon' (from a person heading back to 'civilization') while living in Yellowknife .... the leather seats were cracked (impossible to avoid as leather cracks in intense cold) ... and once I got the hang of 'double-clutching', the car and I became great friends. In fact, it's what I used when leaving a couple years later... loaded my Austin with my dog, some emergency supplies and headed out across the ice bridge - yup, a trusty car indeed!

It helped being young and never giving death a second thought - gentle smile.

Gracious, a cold night at the drive-in wouldn't be any fun at all! Here, ours always closed for the Winter and reopened every Spring - but I don't think there's a single one left anymore. Very sad. Cars/Vans/Bikes etc. Past and Present. Icon_sad
