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!

My father owned a drugstore and he always had a "delivery boy" who delivered prescriptions to the customer's home if they wished (no charge, of course) and his delivery car was always a Corvair.

Thanks, KKL. This was such a great thing to post - how nostalgic. It really makes me long for the good ol' days because that's just what they were. I remember so many of the things in the movie. I vividly remember the day our family got a princess phone!

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

Yeah, me too! And I can't believe my sister used to have a white convertible mustang with red interior. I wonder what that would be worth now a days.

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.

Yes, I remember when my sister thought it was a good deal when I would borrow her car and put a couple of dollars worth of gas in it!

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.
