July/ August '77 Candid!

Tue Sep 20, 2005 2:26 pm

The first shot c/o FECC (although I uploaded my colour one instead) was sent to me by Jim Dandy, to whom I thank!
I also took the liberty of uploading an alternate!
Jim Dandy, raises a good point in that Jim Dandy believes (and now do I) that this just may well be another July/ August '77 candid! Hope we are right!

I always thought these were 1975 shots...

The sideburns look like his July '75 style

This is my main objective here, if we can 'date' these candids correctly, then more power to us! I always loved to be corrected if I/ we have wrongly dated 70's candids! Thanks paulsweeney and joeroberts for your input, sincerely!

perhaps the car he's driving can date this picture more precisely .. does someone recognize this car??

I thought it was his 1975 or maybe even one of 1976 Cadillac but I can't tell what the color of the car is. White?

It looks like his '76 caddilac, the last one he bought. The top picture give's me a '77 feeling whereas the bottom picture doesn't :roll:

If it was this one, it was actually a 1977 Cadillac Seville.

Or perhaps this one, his second to last cadillac, 1977 Sedan De Ville.

Both bought in 1976.

If this one which he later gave to Dr. Lester Hoffman, his dentist. It was purchased late 1975.

Here he is driving the same car in 1975, notice the side mirror is the same as the two photos posted by funkyangel. ... car75.html

Also, it doesn´t look like he´s wearing one of his usual (for ´77) tracksuits... In fact, it looks like one of his so-called "Penguin"- suits from 1975. I think he used them in ´76 too but not later than that, as far as I know.
