Rewind to San Francisco, California, in 1982

Our “Rewind” series is making its first trip to the United States. We’re going back to the parking lot of a Safeway grocery store on the corner of Chestnut and Taylor in San Francisco, California, in 1982.

What car(s) can you identify in the following picture? What one would you most like to have in your garage?

We’d personally go with the white 5-Series on the left side of the photo, though we’d also be tempted by the Volkswagen Squareback parked a little further back.

  1. I’d take the Datsun 510, followed by the white BMW. The car behind the person in the parking lot looks to me like a VW notchback.
