You can say what you want about the South, but you never hear of anyone retiring and moving North.
Yeah, I remember the smell of burning leaves every autumn. And when was the last time you saw a Corvair??

Thanks KKL for posting the link. I was tearing up towards the end as well. I agree with the last line about believing the 60's were the beginning of the end of the last generation of innocence. Can't wait to let my kids watch when they get home from school today. Fabulous stuff!

Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,
Used to worry 'bout rich and skinny, 'til I wound up poor and fat,
Nowadays I kind of worry where my mind's been at,

I wasn't alive in the 1960's but have always had a great fondness for that decade. Thanks for posting that!

The photo that really got me, though, was the photo of the Vietnamese man getting shot in the head. I remember that being on the news ---along with the little girl running down the street naked crying. I think it was shortly after that they stopped showing the war on the nightly news --while everyone was sitting around the dinner table eating supper.

I'd love to have a Classic 'Stang!
It'd be worth a ton...

Not really. You have to constantly pour money into them. They're a PITA to keep running. My brother has one, and it's always in need of something. It's like a giant hole in the garage where he throws money.

I think my last fill-up was $57 and change.

Yeah, that 64028 white '64 with the red interior looks just like what she had. Of course, at the time (1970's) it wasn't so cool.
