Here's my Sepia Saturday contribution, on the theme of cars. Yes, in high school I dated a guy with a Mustang, and I thought I was pretty cool. Top and middle photos are likely 1969, the year my family moved to Ozone Park, Queens, where the photo was taken. The car is a 1966 Mustang, I think. Spent many a weekend helping my beau wash and wax this car (turtle wax!) buying accessories in auto shops (tire gauges, special driving gloves, a leather wrap for the steering wheel). Car shows in the old NY Coliseum.
The mini skirt in the 1971 picture above is actually a hot pants/culottes thing. Don't ask. For those who are familiar with Queens, that's Woodhaven Blvd. in the background, approaching Atlantic Ave.
I was listening to a lot of Al Green at the time. His music always takes me back to the days I rode around in a Mustang.
