Default 49 years ago...Not Model A...well maybe...

This coming August 15-17, 2018 is the 49th anniversary of the biggest Rock and Roll concert ever on USA grounds.

It was Woodstock...August 15-17, 1969. Just courious...did any of you attend?

Did you drive your Model A, if you had one then, to the event? I wonder if anyone did?

I wanted to go as a few of my Cal Poly friends wanted me to go (they did) but could not as I was in Wheat harvest and dad said NO! Some of you may have been WAY to the west of the USA in Vietnam...others may have cared less.

Still love that music!

Pluck

Steve I didn’t go either. But in retrospect I would liked to have been there. History was made.

Steve,


As the New York weather prediction was for a wash out, I didn't bother.


The friends who did go, came back with less than exciting reports of the crowds, mud, and lack of facilities. Some memories soften with age.


I had just finished my first Model A restoration on a 1930 Coupe.


That era music is forever playing in my head as well.

H-mmm, I left Meridian MS to marry my sweetheart, then on to Cecil Field FL to transition from A-4 to A-7 aircraft.. Woodstock was in my head, but not in my heart, as a previous Forum post (What do you regret.?) I sold my '33 3-window to help with the married life monies.! Life does seem to go on.! kb

My wife was there along with 4 or 5 others, 2 or 3 later became Nuns .
I met her that fall at the local college, moccasins and bell ankle bracelet.


Peace

My older brother always said , 'If you remember Woodstock, you weren't there.'

I was doing my duty to God and Country then, but wouldn't have gone anyway. And as you get older, you realize just what a load of BS those type of things really are. It's all for somebody to pocket some quick cash. Nothing more.

I, also, went to Cal Poly from 1966 to 1971 and was in the Ag department.

The closest I got to Woodstock was the movie and the albums. What great music - Crosby, Stills and Nash, Ten Years After, Jimi Hendrix, etc. But, it looks like it was a hassle to get there. I am west coast also, and it would have been very difficult for me to get to New York back then. At the time, I only had dreams of a Model A; it took a lot of years later to finally get one.
