Vintage Snapshot: High School Parking Lot, 1971

Car spotting in a Catholic High School student parking lot

The location is University High School (Uni) which was located across the street from the University of San Diego in Linda Vista. Alas the property was sold and my alma mater was torn down for condos in 2008. Had a great view of the Pacific and Mission Bay from my school. Given the jackets, this is warm and sunny San Diego you know, this picture is most likely shot in January – February of 1971 my senior year. I count at least 39 cars that can be identified although five are Beetles and four are Mustangs which was a most common sight.
