    Default Vintage A-Body Photos

    Was looking around the internet and found these. I don't think A-bodys are quite old enough to be in real "vintage" photos, but here are a few from the 80's and 90's:

    Here's a (semi) vintage photo that means a lot to me



    This photo was taken in Stafford, Kansas in March of 1996 (with 42k miles).

    It doesn't look too much worse for wear near Tacoma, Washington in 2014 (172k miles):



    I'm also a little older now too, but not quite vintage... yet

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing these -- I really enjoyed looking through them.

    My family's 1986 Celebrity on the day it was purchased brand new, in northern Utah. I'm standing at right. That Celebrity ended up becoming my first car 11 years later.



    More on the car's story here.

    Fantastic photos added in the past few days. One of the carriers appears to have mid-80's, about 83-85 Mercury Lynx RS on top of the carrier. I'm restoring an '84 Lynx right now (will be an Escort GT Turbo when I'm done), that's how I spotted it.

    No, on second thought that's not a Lynx, that's one of several Pontiac T1000's on the carrier - clone of the Chevette.

    I really like the tan Celebrity and the Blue with white roof Celebrity - two nice looking cars!

    Actually, I found a good few more 1980s/early 90s photos with A-bodies in them, but I never update this thread
