    The freedom of summer to enjoy as a 10 year old child.
    Unlike the fear and worry of a parent today?

    And I bet they didn't know who the Captain of Thunderbird one was - or who he was named after. And the same for Thunderbird two, three and four - we had proper education in those halcyon days! And I bet they never bought a pack of five Park Drive Plain! (ciggies)

    Blimey - a ten year-old thread resurrected!

    I ran a car for my last year at college - I was signed up to an NHS Authority and they paid me a salary for my last year - not a grant - a proper starting salary:drinks.

    I had a Morris Minor with (wait for it) a rally seat cover:D.

    I remember Billy Connolly, before he was famous...............

    I don't know if you remember a particularly cheap and horrible "wine" called Thunderbird?

    My stepdaughter, after a ltlle too much of that stuff, gave a whole new meaning to the phrase "Thunderbirds are Go!
    And not in a good way:D.

    I am seriously impressed! The one that catches most out is 5 - it was turn and turn about Alan and John (3 months on, three off)- but not a lot of people know that.

    Scott Tracy = Scott Carpenter
    Virgil Tracy = Virgil Grissom
    Alan Tracy = Alan Shephard
    Gordon Tracy = Well, Ros has let me down here - doesn't know

    What we do remember is that Alan was shagging Tin Tin!

    Possibly Gordon Cooper? Mercury and Gemini craft. Famous as the first American to sleep in space - now they do it for six months. How times have changed!

    Back to earth - Beyond Our Ken, The Navy Lark and cerebral TV - Life before Birth and Civilization. How about Sherbert Fountains and the most disgusting chocolate (imho) ever created - Caramac?

    Those were the days
