Do you dress to match the age of your trailor

While I haven't yet done so, a couple of my students suggested the idea while we were listening to an old 8-track with TV Theme Songs (the theme from The Dukes of Hazzard was playing) while waiting for the Homecoming Parade to begin a year ago. Their idea was that I should dress up as Boss Hogg for the Vintage Open House since I already have the Cadillac Convertible to go with the scenario when I take the Cadillac and Minuet to the WBCCI International Rally. I already have the Stetson hat in white - - all I need to do is find a white leisure suit and buy a pair of white shoes and I could be ready to go. I am still debating whether to go through with the idea!

This is the car, only it will be towing the Minuet rather than the Overlander as in this picture.

Kevin,

You have to get a set of longhorns for the hood to complete the picture!

Greetings Brett!

I knew that I was forgetting something. I actually do have a set of longhorns from my days living in Western Kansas - - about the same time I acquired the Stetson.

Also some pistols for door handles ... and lots of Silver Dollars.

Here's a good example:

Remco,

You might get some ideas out of the 1974 brochure:

Yes, the flip-flops will make fabulous footwear in day time. But for night time, you MUST have a pair of polished leather platform shoes (black and white).

And always remember these 3 simple words...Accessorize, Accessorize and Accessorize. I love your camera idea Remcolent! Terry's already mentioned sun glasses. Just make sure they have really big lenses (octagonal ones are preferable) And don't forget to wear lots of gold (fake only) jewelry to go along with a Timex watch with flexible wrist band because, you know, they just keep on ticking (I'd give you one of the six I own, but they are ALL broken) And of course you will also need to purchase some cheap cigars and a wine skin. Wow, man, I'm starting to have flashbacks.

Finally, as an added touch, it wouldn't hurt to brush up on your retro lingo either. Words like wild, snazzy and groovy are...well...hip!

Think polyester!

Go to your local used record store and look at the covers on the albums from the period you're interested in. The clothes are easy but what will you do about your hair? How does your wife feel about a really big hair do? Hairspray? False eyelashes?

You must also give some thought to "period" food. Fondue was cool, banana daquari's, things made with refrigerator rolls and most importantly don't forget: Americans LOVE peanut butter. A mid century favorite was the "fluffer-nutter" Peanut butter and marshmellow fluff sandwich. Also peanut butter and bacon, peanut butter and jelly - both on bread and as an appetizer; peanut butter on celery sticks (with or without raisins). I once had a drink that involved peanut butter, beer, tabasco and cabbage in a blender with ice......

Are you really sure you want to glorify the 50's 60's and 70's....?
