Re:Carnaby St. Pic.I don't think she is with him.I suspect his mates are in front of him out of frame.It looks like his Jumper is peeking out underneath the Harrington and it looks like he is wearing Levi's Cords.Too Bad we can't see his shoes.

I know Reggae/Ska has been discussed before in this forum, but this last thing I heard was just too dumb and too good to pass up and I file it under the dumbest thing I heard for the day.

I was just debating early skinhead music with a poster in another unrelated site: and he says that, wait for it, "Reggae isn't much thought of) in the skinhead culture, especially in the UK and is a different musical genre."

I dont know what this guy was smoking, but I want some. lol

There is a comic library somewhere, although any of the national libraries will have all the back issues.

 

As far as I remember, one of the early numbers included a poster of the 'Bovver boy' character. The clothes offers (shirts and Harringtons, I think) were too expensive for me as a 12-year-old. I think they miss-judged the readership. A lot of it was probably aimed at 15-16-year-olds, but as a comic it was mostly read by younger kids. There was also a 'flimsy' 7" record in one issue, I think. Can't remember what the music was. (The first issue had free brine shrimps, that at the time were being sent up on Skylab.)

In the early 70's this was the car of my dreams

As it seems Spring might have arrived in these parts, I have a question - has anyone any recommendations where to get a good white/ off-white flyfronted mac, as "authentic" as possible to the original period? (I must have got rid of mine in 1973 or 1974 - not that it would be anywhere near a fit for me now. Damned if I can remember where it came from, either. Might have been Stone-Dri or even M&S.) Always did like that look and still think it would look v. smart.

Macintosh do a nice one -tried on a navy one in john Simons' shop a couple of years ago. Very dear though.
Mate of mine saw one turn up in TKMaxx a few weeks back for a hundred quid (which is less than a quarter of what JS was wanting.

I've got a few but bought them all second hand.

Back then, seen thru a kids eyes it had everything going for it, it looked like a spaceship, it had three wheels, it came in bright colours, all cars back then were shades of brown, olive green, off white or duck egg blue and to get in it the roof pivots forward.

I'd still like one now, probably take me an hour to get in it biggrin.gif

Because it was a tricycle, meant you could drive it on a motorbike license, no L-plates needed. Back around 68-72 my father had Reliant Regals(as seen in Only Fools and Horses) because he only had a motorbike license, but we needed something that could transport me. my mum and my younger sister around without getting cold and wet, and it was certainly much better than public transport. smile.gif

I remember sitting in the back seat of my Uncles Lagonda as we drove around Manchester when he spotted and beautiful new Mercedes 280 SL.I remember it like it was yesterday.He turned around to me and said "Son,when you're old enough and you get to drive,that's what you want to drive".

My uncle was a bit of a spiv according to my mother. (I idolised him ) He had got the Lagonda from a Stockport scrap yard in the 60's and rebuilt it to concourse condition.He was a shrewd old bugger.The 280 SL is still my dream car,but i'll never have one.My dream scooter was a Vespa GS VS5 .I eventually got one and when I got it, I realised that it didn't mean that much after all.

Like so many things in life,especially material things - the older you get ,the less important they become.

Bit like pulling a cracker.Once you've had it,it 's not that special anymore.

I am on the lookout for the same Elwood.I have seen a couple of Calvin Klein stone ones that I like ( This is the "Pinewood" ),but I will have to investigate a little further.I looked at some of the mackintosh brand,but it was not what I wanted.I never liked the bonded rubberised

 

 cotton as it always eventually "blistered" and seemed stiff to me,however fine it was.
