Here's my first car....a Datsun 280zx two-tone silver and blue. I loved that car, but don't let its chic appearance fool ya, it was also known as the 'Money Pit'.

 -

btw, it had no problems reaching the required 88 miles an hour....2x if necessary. Hey, someone had to check that out just in case. [Cool]

A little side note....if you check my profile, the kid in me couldn't let it go, so I upgraded.

Nice one! I think i have a chance of reaching the required 88 miles an hour with my Mazda,.But it probably would require pedals to the metals and a large free fall from a tall cliff in the process [Karate Kid]

Be well Valley

Agree completely about summers lasting a lot longer when you were a kid. I remember summers back in the '80's as being long & sometimes boring. I do recall a lot of bike riding, going to the pool, reading comic books, etc. This is all before I got my drivers license.

That changed in Summer '87, when I got my first part-time job - and, from then on I was working either part-time, full-time, and/or going to school.

I miss those care-free summers sometimes - LOL.

It was only via the theme music to 'Phineas and Ferb' that I realised American summer vacations were so much longer than in the UK - 12 weeks! No wonder 'summer camp' was a thing over there!

I get nostalgic for childhood summers not just because of how fun and innocent they were, but because there was so much more greenspace around my area; less people, less houses, less cars. Too crowded now. Yet another thing to miss about the past...

I was telling my husband about how hot my bedroom would get in the summer, and I would beg my parents to buy me a fan, but for some reason, they never did! It was like sleeping in an attic.
In the early to mid 80's, I was riding my bicycle, swimming in our pool, playing a pick up game of baseball with the neighborhood kids or searching for crayfish in the creeks.
In the late 80's I worked all kinds of hours in the summer at a restaurant. Which sucked because all of my friends were out at the night clubs. Sometimes I would meet them after work, even though I was exhausted. I can't believe I'd get up the next morning and go to work!

The food was good when I started there, but at the end of the 1980's, it was bought out by Big Boy. It was then known as Elby's Big Boy. The food went downhill. It closed in 1995. I think there is some sort of medical clinic there now.

Sounds familiar, actually. In the early to mid-80's I was also riding my bike with friends, exploring the woods around my neighborhood, etc.

By the late '80's I was also working nights at a restaurant in the summer - it was my first real job. Very difficult work, but at the time I was happy to be making some extra spending money. I remember working longer hours during the summer, but then when school started I had to cut my hours.

I had somewhat fond memories of "Bob's Big Boy" (later shortened to just "Big Boy"), though didn't eat there as often as I would have liked, since my parents didn't want us kids eating "junk food" - LOL. I grew up on the East Coast, and remember the restaurants being fairly prevalent there.

However, these days, it looks like there re only a handful of Big Boys around:
