My shorts were cut off blue jeans  (A.K.A. "cutoffs").  No store-bought shorts for me in the early 70s.

Those would be A.K.A. Jorts, not to be worn present day.

This was my second 02, a 1970.  Picture was taken in 1984.

I think this is from about 1987.  It was when the 1600 turned 150k, and this was after the first restoration,  the next one came about 10 years later.

Fall 2001 in my driveway in N'awlins...  Not very long after the big paint/body & seats update.

Not that you'd immediately know - lol.  My chosen style for my 02, like the song, remains the same - even 20 years (and endless additional tweaks) later.

Summer 1973 camping in Norway.  (The natives could spot Americans by the way they dressed.) 1972 2002tii 2761282, whose story is in the Registry.  Last seen February 1976 at Platte Avenue Datsun in Colorado Springs.  Miss her often.

Great photo. Makes me want to 1. Go camping in an 02 (I've slept in them but never camped), and 2. While I'm at it, recreate this photo.

 

So many questions -Why was the hood open? Is that a flag or trap? And the ultimate - Why is there an ironed shirt (possibly 2) hanging in the back seat? 

 

Love it!

circa '89.

the local Fire Chief rammed into me doing 35 as i was at a dead stop in Tahoe City "rush hour" traffic. The impact ripped me and the whole drivers seat/seat belt out of the floor and part of the way thru the back window. I was coming back from the store with a couple steaks for my Mom and I.....who had just popped in for the weekend.....The last thing I remember was  looking in my rear view to see the 'Chief coming at me in a 3/4 ton truck and he was looking DOWN!!!. He never hit his brakes...just B A M! Pushed my car over 30 ft ahead and I barely missed the car in front.

 

The whole incident cost the 'Chiefs' insurance company over 1/2 million bux total> for a cash settlement, my car, hospital/emergency room bills, physical therapy for a year.. then Chiro' for another 2 years

Jason, thanks for your interest in Norway Camping in Chamonix 2761282!  Camping in the 2002 was great.  I’ve always been amazed at the cargo capacity of these little cars.  With the roof rack, we had more than enough room for two weeks’ camping gear, spare food and several Jerry cans of extra gasoline (and paper maps).  Two guys camping for two weeks, or four guys skiing in the Alps for a week – never a problem.  Please no comments about hygiene.  My friend took himself, his wife, two in-laws and a two-year-old to Italy for a week in their 2002. We just had different space expectations.  The other notes on the forum about sleeping in the back seat kind of scare me.  In my experience, both front seats sleep fine, but I wouldn’t want to try the back. 

 

In this picture, all the flaps were open for unpacking and normal evening fluid checks (which is not to say this car never stranded me).  As I recall, this was our first night in-country and we were washing off a long road trip.  I was 24 years old and more interested in how the car handled and how to hook up as many driving lights as the Europeans than I was in the different kinds of door mirrors.  So I don’t really know the answer to your mirror question.  Looking at the other pictures in the Registry, they look trapezoidal to me, but I am still no mirror guru.

 

We stopped to see my camping buddy’s relatives in Norway, and he did not want to shame the American side of the family.  So he brought a couple of changes of “normal” street attire.  I asked him to hang them behind my seat for better visibility.  It was strawberry season in Norway, and every few miles there was a farmer's kid with a roadside stand peddling paper cones of the berries.  The stems tossed from our vent windows stained the Chamonix to a pink shade from the doors to the back of the car for much of the trip.  Great memories and great friendships.  We still get together every few years.

 

John
