This was posted to my FB and I am shocked but this is my cousin Bruce to the far left. 86th st and Stillwell Ave...it was a cruising strip. Would take three hours to go ten blocks on a Friday or Saturday summer night. No we were not rich kids but we did drive some nice cars..We all worked from young ages and saved up to buy a car.Mowed lawns, shoveled snow , delivered bread, pizzas, bussed tables ect. Its something you could do back in the day work, earn a good wage and save . Not today. Good memories.
Captured the 80's perfectly. Seems like only yesterday, which is strange; June 1982 was when I was born.
When I was small and watching Smokey And The Bandit, I really wanted a car like The Bandit's. Still do.
The good ol days ... good ol boys, good girls, great cars. worry free, nice blue color on Trans AM brotha!!! I wonder if he ever got connected to the InterWebnet. I can bet you my left nut they went to the water shore after this and smoked a joint. Then, sandwiches, beers, and ....
Those teenager, must have been really rich.. thats a really nice car. pretty sure those didn't come cheap back in the day.
Great photo though!
Just because they have mini mustaches they aren't teenagers? This is Brooklyn! Get it together people!
30 years since the photo.
I wonder what they look like now? I hope they got an education and kicked the fags.
