    Fair enough, apologies if the quote made it seem like I was targeting you. Now let's all get back on track - less pop stars, more clothes...

    roy, i believe he's talking about the 'old-er' american skins who still claim to be skins but look like 'gangstas'. and comparing that to this 'lars' fella since he went from punk to skin at the age of 40 (i guess around there). i personally think lars as a skin is fine, sure he might be doing it for the attention to his new oi band, but only time will tell if he changes into something else..who knows..

    and as for the slade pic, i guess it shows runners on the original skins (even if slade did it as a quick stint).

    Thank-you sivanpunk for putting that right.This Thread is about Traditional Skinheads and even though we were known as aggressive little b*st*rds,we like to think we have moved on.Bloody hell I now let Bikers walk the Streets unharmed!!:) Joking aside can we not keep the Subject on track-instead going off into who was Punk then Skinhead or whatever.If People are dressing more to the Skinhead Style so be it-for whatever reason.But one thing I ask is do not put Slade in the same Catagory as us Originals-that is an insult!!!!:D

    Rant over.

    I agree Colin they was never skinheads, and none of the originals looked as them as such, no one in London had heard of them until late 71, ?

    I find a lot of present day skinheads seem to associate them with the original skinheads, I have even seen skinheads at present day doos wearing Ruperts the type that Noddy Holder wore.... Not
    the Ruperts that was popular in London for about the Summer of 70.

    Their still seems to be a confusion regarding Ruperts, ??

    Regarding the ruperts we wore, we have spoken about them before, and we have described them, I wonder if Bunty can dig out a photo of a pair, :D

    Another vintage photo, supposedly taken in Margate in 70s (exact year not known but i'm sure someone recognizes the car and can date it, altho the car looks to be from later 60s)? Anyways, it's another great shot, thanks to Joao for bringing it to attention

    The left car looks like the Vauxhall Cresta, year number plate 66, the other car is a Ford Zephyr Mk 1V made 66 to 72.

    Great pic.

    :D Thought it was , I am surprised Spilla that you have come on this site after saying on other sites that this thread is full of old skinheads answering stupid questions from younger ones.
    Also you have never been one interested in the originals anyway, Don't get you mate, :confused:
