Back to the 60's, can you dig it.....!!


Hey dudes, check out the wheels, cool yeh! These are the shots I was holding back from the vintage car show,  these beauties brought back fab memories. Picture the scene.. mini skirt, boots, Mary Quant hairstyle, makeup etc. who remembers that world, I know I do, it was the grooviest time ever! I remember thinking I was the 'bees knees' driving around in my Morris Minor (above) only it was bright red (hand painted, kooky huh!) with yellow hubcaps, can you dig it! (NOT happy when it was referred to as the Noddy car!). I wonder how many of us drove around in one of these three types of cars..P had a mini (below) but definitely not in such good nick even back then, his sister a MGB (above)..but my wheels were definitely the coolest man! Happy Wednesday, hang loose and chill! btw. how exciting is it that the CDP is up and running again, a huge thanks to Julie, Eric, Peter, Gerald and all who had a hand in creating this fabulous new site, merci beaucoup! p.s. thanks heaps for all the birthday wishes.....

  3. i remember the 60s well ... all that wonderful Carnaby Street stuff, Twiggy, the rad eye lashes ... hot pants .. isn't it interesting that with all the revivals of styles the 60s haven't really made a fashion comeback ..

  6. That Morris Minor sure brings back the memories. Those sure were the days!! When in London I had my pic taken by the Carnaby St sign and it was a big thrill. When I think of the amount of eyeliner I used back then I can't believe it!!

  9. How much fun:) Was this a trip down memory lane?:) I remember these types of cars still driving around when I was little. They've really changed over the years. It's nice to go back in time and revisit a little piece of history.

  10. Yay, super groovy cars, the sequel! Love the Morris Minor - and those Minis are super-popular here. They say fashion cycles, maybe there's hope yet for Mary Quant hair etc to make a true comeback!:)

  14. Mine was a VW bug. Without flower decals but with lots of dents. The only English cars we saw were Triumphs and Austin Healys. But your car does sound groovy.

  24. I like these classic car shows as I usually find several like the ones I owned back in the good ol' days. My first car was a 1937 Chevy!

  26. Ah, memories, my first car was a MGB Roadster.....youth killed it quickly though, I think it lasted five months before I wrapped it around a tree! Have a good week!
