Time line would be around 1974, a couple years out of high school. A buddy, Dave and I drove down from Seattle to the Sierra's in mom's 1972 Datsun 1200 with an automatic to go back packing up in the snow fields around Mammoth. I still have that old Kelty pack and blue foam pads. Those were the days. Lost touch with Dave.

I had one of those crush hats and a mustache

Mom's had hub caps

Dad had a MG 1000 until I dropped the clutch in gravel and spun the teath off the fly wheel. Dad junked the car for 50 bucks. Sorry Dad, that was a great little car.

My favorite car from those times was my 1967 Datsun 1600 Roadster. Not as good looking as this restored one but I did have a new paint job.
