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!
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.
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….
If you lived through the 1960s and remember it, I hope you’ll share an iconic memory in the comments section.
