Grew up in a Buick Special 1955 two-door. Burgundy red, cream white top. Whitewalled tyres. I could not find a proper model, so I have slaugtered the most similar I found and rebuilt it right. 1:24 .
Cars of the sixties WERE more varied and interesting, but when that is said, European cars were even more so. More experimental in their technical inventions also. Partly a reason many of their brands out- sold American ones later.

Good luck with your site. I'll be watching you.
Yours Paul

Admin reply: Thanks for stopping by Paul. Only automobiles I had back then was a 1955 Dodge and a 1957 Chevy but they were the world to me.

Love the site! I'm a big fan of 1960s and early 1970s TV. If you update your list, you should include Ed McBain's 87th Precinct with Robert Lansing, Norman Fell, and a very attractive Gena Rowlands. A wonderful series, which unfortunately was up against The Danny Thomas Show and The Andy Griffith Show. Only three channels...

Admin reply: I vaguely remember the series. It only lasted one season and was based on the series of stories by Ed McBain. Thank you for sharing Don.

Thanks for the memories.
But I miss the mention of Hawaii Five-O.
It should be definitely added to the list in my opinion.
Thanks again. :!clap:

Admin reply: You are right Hawaii 5-0 should be there and will be included at a later date. The site is an ongoing site and is updated weekly. Thank you for your input Joe.

Hi Carl,

Thanks again for answering my two question, it is a shame that you and other Vietnam Vets were not treated better upon your arrival back home here in the US from your tour of duty of Southeast Asia.

I having been born in 1959 saw the world around me through the eyes of a very young child I was told by my mom that I look at everything back then with great awe! weather it was manmade or one of Gods creation, so truely the one thing I miss most about the 60s is seeing the world around me through the eyes of a young child where the newness of things hasn't worn off yet.

Hi Carl,

For some time now I've been reading through your guest book, some of the entries brought a warm smile to my face while other brought tears to my eyes,

I have two question I like to ask you, beside the family you where raised in "what is the one thing you miss most about the 60s and why?" second " what is the one thing you do not miss about the 60s and why?" Thanks Carl,

Drew :!time:

Admin reply: Really difficult to answer those questions Drew but I have had some time to think about it. The sixties was a more simpler time. What I miss most about the 60s was growing up with the friends we had back then. I don't believe in any other time in my life and probably most folks' life do we have any closer friends then when we were at that young age. But those friendships slowly evaporate as we age and go our own ways, start families and careers. We do develop new relationships throughout our lives but they just don't compare. I have remained friends throughout the years with my best friend Ron. We get together still today talk about those days with laughter and fondness.

We live in a country with free speech which I understand and defended while serving my country but what I don't miss or didn't care for was the treatment many of us Vietnam Vets received upon our return from Southeast Asia. I was spat upon in the Columbus Ohio airport upon my return by a hippie chick and I still see her vividly today. I am sure she did not understand we were called upon to do a job without much choice. That incident was that the hardest for me to accept growing up in the sixties.

I'm on a radio station here in Mason City and I play a lot of 50s and 60s music.......my era. I would like to know if there is a newsletter that I could subscribe to that would give me info about the singer's etc. That I could use on the air and plan in advance of my show. Thanks for any help you could give me. Kaye

Admin reply: Thank you for your stopping by Kaye but off the top of my head I cannot think of one. I have some books for my research plus I use the Internet to assist me with my website.

Fantastic selection of tunes for the August 29 Solid Gold Memories!! Have listened to it every day since Friday when it became available, and most days have listened to it twice. Turn it on and go about my day. Yes, retirement has its benefits.

Nice site, I was born in '65.

On your list of 60's shows, did I miss The Mod Squad and The Monkees?

Admin reply: The Monkees show has been completed but not yet uploaded to the television of the 60s page.It will go up this Friday. The Mod Squad began its run on TV during the 1968-1969 season so it actually was only shown for one TV season during the 60s. It ran until 1973. Thank you for stopping by Bobbi.
