Flashback Friday - Me, Tina and the beloved Vauxhall

Well, as I'm useless I've only just discovered the lovely Karin has started a new blog hop of 'golden oldie' photos.  I absolutely adore looking at old photos so I'm really looking forward to this one!


This is little old me outside our old house in a village called Mynydd Isa.  It was probably taken in about 1977-1978 I reckon as we moved from this house in 1979 when I was almost 5.  That's not a stuffed toy, that's the family dog - a toy poodle called Tina who I used to wind up something rotten...poor pooch.

Star of the show though (and probably the reason my Dad took this photo) is the trusty old Vauxhall Cresta in the background.  My Mum & Dad actually met at Vauxhalls in Luton, Bedfordshire so they have ALWAYS had Vauxhall cars.  Even now my Dad drives an Omega and my Mum drives a Corsa. Sad.

Why not air your photo memories and link up with Karin?

Thanks so much for joining in and helping to promote it.

I'll bet I could produce an almost identical photo given access to my Mum & Dad's albums!

Thought you were doing I'm a little teapot til I eventually saw the dark splodge sat at your feet, hehe :D x

I have a very similar photo - not a vauxhall though! Think it was just a coincidence the cars in mine though, it wasn't all that great!

Great pic!
I thought you might have been going to add an extra bit of juicy goss about the Vauxhall, Heather (eg. perhaps you were conceived in the back seat?? Just saying...your parents certainly do seem particularly attached to the brand. Fond memories perhaps??? :)

Have a great weekend.

Hee hee, Trish's comment made me giggle.

SAHM thank you for your lovely comment.

Love your photo.

My Mum and Dad had a gorgeous white rover when I was that age. Wish I had a photo of it. Black leather interior. THAT's when they knew how to make cars.

You have a lovely weekend too......
