  5. I remember sitting in the floor in front of the TV and watching the Beach Boys on the Ed Sullivan show that Sunday night in 1964.

    Got remember that show was telecast in Black & White,,color broadcasting really didn't get started until 1965. HRP

    It makes total sense 'cause they certainly LOOK like east coast cars.

    It's a little known fact that Carl helped popularize the term "high waters" that night.

    Can't confirm my sources, though.

    Rock and roll has been going down hill ever since Buddy Holly died.

    Guess I should have used Milners whole quote. I have a few Beach Boys albums. One still in the plastic wrap.

    Yep, I saw it too. My whole family gathered around the TV every Sunday night for The Ed Sullivan show.

    I guess the music died in 1959 for some after the infamous plane crash with Holly, Valens, and the Big Bopper. For me Rock n' Roll lived on up to around 1985 or so when Huey Lewis was still really rockin'.

    Whether you like them, or not (I happen too), The Beach Boys and Jan & Dean made many positive rodding contributions to the youth car culture.

    Little Duece Coupes, Woodys, 409's, Drag City, Little Ole' Lady from Pasadena's Super Stock Dodge etc... got introduced to a generation that otherwise may have never become interested.

    Now, I gotta go dig out all those old vinyl records in the closet, and listen to them again. :D

    Yep, you're right with the Milner quote. Don McClean sang "the day the music died" referring to the '59 Plane crash in the song American Pie.

    It's hard to believe those young boys are old guys in their 70's now.I bought the "Thats Why God Mad the Radio" CD too. In my opinion, they are as good as ever. Great CD. Hear the group has broken up once again. I guess they are better at making music than getting along with each other. --- Steve ---

    ^ any recent pix? As famous as some "album art" cars got, you'd think that the Mailman Special would be far better known. I don't recall seeing special magazine coverage on it at all. Was there? Gary
