It’s time for another Funky Foto Flashback hosted by Bex over at Adventures of the Grigg Boys.

The year was 1994 and I was a total hippie wannabe. I drove a 1979 VW Bus, decked out with Grateful Dead stickers and I even dressed the part. I’m pretty sure I was born in the wrong decade.

Notice that I’m even barefoot?

This picture of Rusty (the bus) was taken a few years later. He burned oil everywhere I went so I kept spare oil in the back and was always adding more. I kept him through my freshman year of college but then got sick of breaking down so often so I moved on to another car that was equally as unreliable.

    You pull off that look really well. You even have the glasses right. Awesome! I was the hippie in my family also but then of course there were hippies still around every corner.

    Love you! I also carried around the extra oil for a vw LOL I saw Stevie Nicks in concert when I was in HS….yeah, back when she was all young and confused.

    Where do you find all these pix, btw? I’d have to pry the few I remember out of my mom’s photo book

    Ha! We both did car photos…so eerie. You were absolutely adorable, you little hippie freak. We could’ve totally hung out, although I’m pretty sure my Regal would’ve kicked the VW’s ass. 😉

    You look awesome. Those of you who put your photos up are so brave. I looked like such a weirdo, I could never post my photos. I mean, I still do look like a weirdo, but it was baaad in high school.

    Looks like Rusty is losing his “pipes” there on the bottom. Poor thing.

    Love the photo–“Just like the white-winged dove, sings a song just like she’s singin’, whooo, baby, whooo. Say, whooooo.” Go, Stevie.

    I love your flashback photos.

    After being the child of Hippie parents and endless unreliable bugs, I was ready to get out of the clunkers.

    At least you remembered to carry oil. My childhood memories of driving with my dad, were spent running out of gas and having to hitchike to the nearest gas station!

    Dude you look really short in that picture. Cute piggies though! I want a VW bus so bad I can hardly stand it. It’ll be pink with green flowers on it. Tavis and I will smoke pot in it when we’re old.
