Chevy Caprice Wagon, 1967


Ivy. The suit, not the wagon.

I'm not sure what he's up to (a little suspicious, no?) but I like the suit.

The 60's weren't all hippies.

Suspicious is right...the guy is kinda creepy...I hear him inquiring: "Young Ladies...would you each like to earn five bucks the hard way." LOL

I like the car. My family bought a new one in '67 from Werring Chev-Olds; ours was white with the faux wood grain sides. In lieu of that 3rd seat, there was a capacious storage cavity below and one off to the side.

My brother and I could completely disappear within these. Curled up inside, I could hear the concrete seams of Rt. 22 in NJ going thunk-thunk-thunk-thunk as they whizzed by at 60 MPH, just 8 inches under my ear.

On a positive note, it allowed us to fully isolate ourselves from the haze of cigarette smoke emanating from the front.
