The “Wayback” Machine:

Not pictured: the ashtray above the lockable storage.

The Barrett Jackson themed weekly car show at the Pavillions had a larger than usual contingent of wagons -that is to say, more than the usual zero. This time:  1986 (+/-) Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.  This is near and dear to my heart because:  

  • How do I know the year – there is a third brakelight, which came on line for 1986.
  • We owned a ‘78. Yay for red vinyl seats!.
  • I had a ‘79 Pontiac Catalina. Same car as Dad’s, other than the tail lights and fiberglass front end, better adventures.
  • Shenanigans in the “wayback.”
