In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

It's Chevrolet Time

Dear Blowhards --

Lex turns up a clip on YouTube that'll ... Well, if you spent any time during the '60s watching television, these are names, faces, and voices that will bring it all back. Now, whether that's a good thing or a bad thing ...



And those "Jetsons"-era wheels! I remember owning a Corvair, and thinking a Chevelle was a pretty hot number.

Best,

I found myself thinking that Elizabeth Montgomery was a pretty hot number.

I like the metallic clank when the doors are closed. It sounds nothing like a modern car. That sound took me back to my Dad's 66 Oldsmobile F-85 Deluxe, which was a terrific car.

Names, faces, voices - and score. You wouldn't get the full dose of artificial cheer without those strings and clarinets.

I couldn't get this one to play. Never had this problem before. The others work, but not this one. Got another link?

I played the "Dead or Alive" game...mostly dead; makes me feel old.

Hey the Chevelle is still a hot number! Have you seen the prices for pre-73 Chevelles on ebay?

That ad is for the 1965 Chevy II.

My first car was a 1962 Chevy II. Ah, the memory of that floor board rusting thru and being able to see the road as I drove!
