(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 203: The Pink Oldsmobile

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a small photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:  

This photograph was taken in 1958, probably by my mother, in front of the Marshall Chamberlain home at 4601 Terrace Drive in San Diego (I recognize the awnings!).

That is my father, Frederick Walton Seaver, proudly standing next to his brand new, PINK, Oldsmobile 88.   This was a four-door, roomy, comfortable, car for our family of five.  No seat belts, no air conditioning, no power windows.  

Why a PINK Oldsmobile?  I think that he got a good deal on it and was able to drive it off the lot.  

Our family took several driving trips to bowling tournaments in California in this car.  My father drove it all over San Diego for his work as an insurance agent, and it served as a great car for Little League equipment and players.
