I think I'm going to have to lurk on ebay and try and snap up one cheaper than that. Trouble is, I think there's a whole bunch of other people on the hunt for it as well.


I had been watching for a few weeks and I was surprised at the range of prices especially considering it was only 3 and a tanner when new!!

I'm sure we'd love to see that pic!

I'd like to share some pics I found on the internet - really they were drawn to my attention. The earliest is 1941, the latest 1968. There's an element of pose and coolness we would recognise in all of them.

1941 first

A bunch of African-American kids in Chicago. I know we've seen pics on this thread of people perching themselves on the bonnet (hood) of a car.

1950-ish, a bunch of New York City greasers.

1950s American kids with their car (hmmm... customised Ford Model A?). Note turn-ups, loafers, car-coats, white socks. Compare the turn-ups with the greasers' in the previous pic, and with mod/skinhead turn-ups.

Canadian Premier Pierre Trudeau with his cabinet in 1968. Cannuck politicians knew how to wear a suit and step out (although the guy on the right seems to be mincing a bit).

1968. Seriously, can any of us actually remember the Queen and Prince Philip looking cool until we see this pic of them... draped over the bonnet of a vehicle!

I mean... sports jacket and flannels aren't meant to be cool, neither is a Norman Hartnell two-piece. It all depends how you wear 'em.

Little Green Bag by the George Baker Selection was playing in the background when this photo was taken.

Too soon ?

I meant too early in the morning - before my second cup of Earl Grey!

But talk about an almighty cock-up!
