Buick has reinvented itself now, but back in the day, there was no better throwback than a 1960s Buick. Note the gear shift on the steering column. The narrow, uncovered steering wheel and the slim horn. This one’s cherry, isn’t it? Oh, and it’s Throwback Thursday!
Forget the blue/white dress. This is much better, if a little dizzying. Doesn’t this just scream Throwback Thursday? So here’s my question: Is this black on white or white on black?
The Courreges version of these boots was white, but 1960s go-go boots are iconic.
Bonus points for knowing what SDS means and was.
Points for knowing what that stone is called. We had it in our dining room, foyer and on the patio.
This was still happening in the 1960s. I saw it. Points for having actually seen it and been shocked and horrified. Bonus points for still being shocked and horrified.
This, too. I lived it.
Flower power. If you had one, double bonus points for being a real throwback!
Pre-Zamfir. Points for knowing who Zamfir is without Googling.
It seems strange that many of the pro-war adults I knew made sure to keep their sons out of the draft. Not that it was anyone close to me or anything. In a way I can’t blame them but in another way, well, can you spell H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E? I wonder what these now grown men tell their children about why they didn’t serve in Vietnam….
Points for knowing what kind of hair spray everyone used.
Points for knowing who she is. Hint: she is 90 years old and still spouting anti-women’s rights rhetoric. Points for knowing what the ERA is. Bonus points for having marched in an ERA parade.
Did you have a 1960s-era one of these? Score!
You only get Throwback points if you wore the entire outfit, top to bottom.
If you lived through the 1960s and remember it, I hope you’ll share an iconic memory in the comments section.
