Every Thursday, we scour the archives to bring you a vintage slice of Auto Americana.

For this inaugural #carlove #tbt post, may we present to you a celebrity version: Jack Nicholson, 1969, Los Angeles, as photographed by LIFE magazine. Oh, and the VW convertible was yellow. Because, Jack. Don’t you just love #throwbackthursday?

Happy Jack.

Happy Jack.
