What are your memories of downtown Clemson?

May 3, 2018, 10:23 AM

For me ('91), it was Judge Keller's, Mr Knickerbocker's, Manifest Records & Tapes, the Duck Head outlet store (yeah, I was a prep), cheap movies at the Astro, Tigertown Tavern, the hardware/drug store or whatever it was down on the right as you're leaving campus, and buying all my loft materials at Ol' Norm's.

going to were Dan's, Red Carpet, Judge Keller's, Astro Theatre, Capri's Upstairs, and the Y. i can't even remember if Knickerbockers was there when I was a student or a few years later...when did it open?

And I do remember the music store that two skinny boys with long blond hair worked at. I think they were brothers, played guitars in a band and their dad was a Clemson professor. Seems like he owned the store. Can anyone refresh me on that?

My jr year I took a lunch somewhere downtown. It was raining hard and I saw a friend walking so I stopped and gave him a ride back to the library. I was driving a 1968 Datsun B110. The driver's seat wasn't bolted down and I had put a concrete block between the DS and the rear seat so the massive power of that worn out 4cyl engine wouldn't sling me in the back when I pulled out. :)

The floorboard was rusted through on the passenger's side and I'd put some newspaper there so the water wouldn't spray through the hole and wet my pristine interior. :) :)

When Brinley got in he must have dislocated the papers because the water soon hit him right in the face. He laughed and told me he'd sell me a 1971 Pinto for the cost of the new tires and the rebuilt starter he had just in installed. He told me it probably wouldn't last long but he only spent $125 on the car. I agree and picked it up later that day.

Compared to that Datsun it was a new Lincoln Towncar. I told him it would get me through Clemson. He promised to buy it back if it lasted that long.

My family drove to graduation in our wagon and I drove it expecting Brinley to buy it back after the ceremony. The rat turd lied so I drove it for another two years.
