The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

Recommended Posts

70's was the era of, well quite a bit. It was definitely the decade that fashion forgot. Flared trousers got so outrageous I used to wear bicycle clip when driving to stop my feet getting tangled up with my trousers, and them dangling in the dirt on the floor.. Oh and shirt collars with rounded ends. And I was so proud of my centre parted hair. At least I never got into platform shoes.

I looked in hindsight such a dork.
