Vintage Snapshots: Cars of the San Francisco Bay Area – 1989

Back in 1989, Ms. D and I drove our Celica down to the Bay Area to visit my brother for Thanksgiving. He was attending Stanford at the time and living near Palo Alto. Our trip took place only weeks after the Loma Prieta earthquake and when we got down there, the Bay Bridge was still closed. When digging through old photos for my COAL pieces, I came across some pictures of the area that I took through the windshield. In a couple of these, you can even see the Celica’s emerald green paint on the sliver of hood that is showing. Have fun seeing how many cars you can identify!
