Steve, Jane, Nancy, Polly, me

This photo was taken of me and my 4 siblings in the back of our Rambler station wagon.  Based on the PJ's, I suspect we were heading out on a long trip - probably to Boise to see the grandparents.  My mom used to dose us all with Dramamine and toss us in the back of the wagon with blankets and pillows to sleep our way there.

I remember waking up hearing thumps when we drove through the high desert in the middle of the night - hitting jackrabbits blinded by the headlights.  I would also wake up and be blinded by the lights during service station stops!

I am probably 9 in this picture.  When I turned 16 the Rambler was turned over to me to drive.  Standard transmission, shift on the column.  I could haul a lot of people around!

Classic picture! I spent a lot of time in my aunt's Rambler during Minnesota summers in the 60s. I remember the dashboard controls had pushbuttons.

We had a Rambler when I was a kid!

That's a wonderful photo. Ah, the days of no seat belts.

My family had a Rambler too :-) How old are the other kids in the pic? They look to be very close in age! Well, three of them :-)

So cute! Too bad there isn't a shot of all 5 of you, zonked out in the back. That would be so funny.
