Aw, come on, Joe, I would have TOTALLY loved to have that car in the 70s! ;-)
I wonder what kind of car that was
I'm no car expert but I believe that's the famed gremlin
No offense to any Gremlin enthusiasts, but that thing is pretty ugly
Just stumbled upon your blog and now I'm wasting too much time with it at work. That is indeed the famed Gremlin. The wife of one of my dad's cousins owned one around 1974-75 and I remember riding in the hatch to pick up an ice cream cake from Carvel's. No seat belts. Just me and my cousin waving at the cars following us. '70s lime green and ugly as sin.Thanks for a great blog. I like what I've seen so far and the memories are priceless.
I loved Carvel ice cream cakes. I hadn't thought about those in years. I remember fighting over who got the pieces with the most clear gel writing on them
I grew up in Bethlehem, PA. The major TV stations were all Philly with channels 5, 9, and 11 out of NY. I can still hear the Carvel guy's gravelly voice saying "Fudgie the Whale".The strip mall near us had a Carvel, along with a Fotomat in the parking lot.
My dad's uncle Phil and Aunt Steph lived in Bethlehem. He was a college professor. I only met them a few times though. They had a granddaughter named Stephanie (or was it Rebeccah) who was my age.
Actually I think it was Rebeccah (sp?)
