I ran across this pic and thought this might be a fun topic. Post the oldest pic you can find of you with a car. We all have them so dig them out. Give a little background on the pic if you can. Let's have some fun.

Here's mine.

I was two years old and it was taken at my grandmothers house in San Leandro, California. I am the already car crazy nut behind the wheel. I'm guessing the bug must be a 65 or so. 😃

I'll see if I can dig up some old pictures. I'll tell you now, they're going to be some old cars in those pictures. Lol.

The first picture was taken in California during the summer of 1967-so I was about 4 years old with my Mom, sister and me standing by my Gramas 1963 Buick Wildcat
The second picture was in my Uncles 1966 VW camper-the time stamp says 1970 but it had have been taken earlier than that, back then we had rolls of film in the kitchen drawer that never got developed until a year or two later........Great Topic !!

Well, I tried to find an old picture but didn't have much luck. Here are two from when I was on Okinawa back in the late 60's. One is with a friend who was killed on Okinawa at my Datsun and the other is me in a Jeep.

I'm going to say that's probably a '63 just judging by the window size, the brick red interior, the front seats and the antenna placement.

Thanks for clearing the date up, there was some writing on the back -so I've corrected that also.
Me in the back of my Dads '56 Chevy pick up around 2 1/2 yrs.old, And Grampas pre-historic brush hog around 3-4 yrs. old.
The last picture is from Christmas with my first Hot Wheels track :wub: must have been around 6 yrs. old at the time.
