Joe College autobiography; 1968 and 1969

I've decided to break this down into 2-year chunks up until I turn sixteen, and then we'll go a year at a time after that. In 1968 I remember Pierre Elliott Trudeau coming to Central Park in Burlington, where thousands experienced Trudeaumania firsthand. My dad brought the reigning Miss Canada, Carol McKinnon from PEI, over to our fourplex on Prospect Avenue for dinner. My dad had great jobs and some pretty cool cars too.

The first car I remember was the Studebaker station wagon with the sliding sunroof; this was an awesome car for a kid, as me and my sister used to stand up in the back on nice days, sticking our heads, shoulders and arms up through the sunroof. Then he had a yellow 1964 Fairlane convertible with a black top. When we moved to Burlington he acquired a 1967 Galaxie 500, with an 8-track tape player in it. I remember the Everly Brothers and The Beatles getting high rotation in that car, and the radio was pretty awesome too. I think he had a Lincoln Continental after that, and it was one of the first cars my friends and I had seen that had a phone in it.

More to come...
