I apologize for the lack of posts the last few months. I haven’t had time to go wandering looking for new material and this blog’s been on autopilot. I’m hoping to fix that and have a new thing to share more often.
Anyway, I saw this, and had to share.
The kids needed shoes for a wedding they’re going to be in and my wife had me meet her at a mall in Chesterfield County to buy them. That’s where I saw this Chevy Citation. They only made them from 1980 to 1985 (though the planning had started back in the ’70s), so I can’t really be sure of its age. I can tell you that this one’s got a 4 cylinder engine in it.
I keep a spot in my heart for these funny looking remnants of the 1980s because a neighbor of mine drove one and he was one of the coolest older kids I knew. Moreover, in my memory, it’s a smaller car than it is in real life. For the time period though, this was a small car. It sported either a straight 4 or a V6 instead of the V8s that its predecessors did.
In any case, this one’s clearly seen better days, but as with all things from the 80s, I’m happy to see it’s still got a life and is chugging along.
