happy birthday daddy!

this is one of my favorite pictures of my dad. can you tell what kind of car he's driving? here's the answer.

and since we're talking about cars, when i was searching vw's on flickr, i came across this photo and realized that my dad is in it. he's the one walking in front of the car. i later found out that it came from this book.
VW Cal look

my dad and my uncle use to race. the pictures directly above and below are of them. i know my dad is driving in the one below, but i'm not sure about the one above.
love ya daddy!

this week is filled with birthdays. i will be celebrating for many days to come!

hope everyone's week is off to a great start.

  1. vw's are so great. how cool that you spottied your dad!
    hey, congrats on your new baby! so exciting!

  2. whoa, that is such a cool discovery! I didn't know your dad was into cars, and raced for that matter. That first picture is so great.

    Have fun with all the birthday festivities. They can surely become exhausting all piled together like that. Especially with a sweet new baby. See you soon!

  3. Wow, that's so cool! Your dad seems awesome. Do you own the book? Seems like it would be a wicked memento. I still have a piece of paper with my father's old shoe repair shop title and info, from when he had a shop when I was a baby.

  4. Ooooooh, yeeeeaaah! I love me a VW. Personally, my dream is to recapture the VW van that my mom had when I was a kid. Driving in it with the sunroof rolled open, the low hum of the motor, the smell of the wind, the sound of the radio, that's my happy place.

    Happy birthday to your father! He looks like a fun guy.

  5. Ahh, the love of VW's was genetically passed down to you! You had no option but to be fit for a bus!!!! :D Someday you'll get your bus, I'll have my square back and we'll park at the beach for campouts, bonfires, and guitar songs to the ocean! :D

    That's a great shot of your Dad- happy birthday to him!!!

  6. How cool that you discovered your dad in this photo from a book!

  7. Wow, what a cool bit of dad history, and even better that there are published photos out in the world! I can see now where your VW love hails from :)

    Hope your dad had a wonderful birthday, and all is well with you and the newly expanded fam!
