I might need a vintage Datsun

I love my old Volvo* stationwagon, don't get me wrong. I love her.

But Christine just posted this photo of herself and her dad with his Datsun and I'm kind of freaking out.

Now I need to get my hands on a picture of my dad with his Peugeot.**

*I know, I know. Old Volvo + Echo Park = total cliche.

**Or my dad under his Peugeot
. I think he spent more time working on the car than he did driving it. Men.


  1. I have a Volvo wagon too! ('87 740, to be exact.) And um, HELLO...Volvo wagon + Portland + Dog + New Seasons??? TOTAL EFFING CLICHE!!!!!!!

  2. Um, mine is an '88 760.

    You just made me google New Seasons. I wish we had New Seasons. We have to go to Whole Foods b/c I'm too snotty for Trader Joe's + their gluten-free options suck.

  3. I will never get rid of my 86 Volvo wagon. It's like being in a cool club with other dorks driving what used to be a mom car (or maybe still is a mom car. I don't know). You would never believe how many people leave notes on my window wanting to buy it.

    And it's big enough for my big ass dog. And my husband's big ass surfboard fits inside it. Like a surfboard locker if you will.
