Original Hipster

Original Hipster. Shot on a Kodak Instamatic circa 1974. Grampa Bruce. He owned a gas station called Speedway Motors. Note hibachi on TV Table on the far right. Beer glass in hand. In those days it was two glasses for 75 cents on terry cloth tables while you waited your turn at shuffleboard or darts. Bruce was champion darts player. His basement was full of trophies. He drove a 70 Trans Am with a 455 four speed, which would be worth a fortune today. He bought it for my Aunt but took it back after a year. He also had the rig you see in the photo. A big two-door Ford sedan for trailer pulling. He was not a nice man.
