Rewind to Seattle, Washington, in the late 1970s and the early 1980s

We’re traveling back to Seattle, Washington, during the late 1970s and the early 1980s. The first three photos were seemingly taken in the city, and the last one shows cars being transported from Seattle to Alameda on the USS Enterprise.

What car(s) can you identify in these images? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage today? We’d be happy with the blue International Scout on the deck of the USS Enterprise, or the beat-up yellow Beetle in the first photo.

  1. I’ll take the Corvette and the orange Austin 1300 beside the Corolla Liftback down to the right. I think it’s an Austin, – not an MG, because I’ve never seen any MG 1300 with that color.

  2. Lots of cool on that barge! Notchback fox body, 2 door Caprice (2), Datsun 620, Toyota Hi-Lux, blue/white Blazer, orange Monte Carlo, 58-60 Ford Truck, Old GMC pickup, VW rabbit and that custom Chevy LUV! Neat pic!

  3. I don’t think I would call the Enterprise a barge.I do love the early bug with the flared fenders. I had a set on one of my bugs years ago. Us Navy guys love our cars. Lots of sweet looking ones taking a ride on the flight deck there.

  5. Do you happen to have any more photos from the Enterprise? My family was on that trip. I can see my dad’s red Toyota truck, which he and a friend would drive back and forth from Bremerton to Alameda every couple of weekends instead of having us move to Bremerton.
