Yeah, I owned a pair or Ferrari’s in the 80’s…

Time to head out to the dance at my Junior High school, never sure to go with the acid washed jeans rolled up tight, Izod shirt with the collar up, or parachute pants and my leather Members Only jacket… One thing for sure, I would be taking my pair of Ferrari’s… Nothing was cooler than being seen out in front of the gym, getting dropped off by my Mom in our brown Ford Pinto wagon, taking a few steps, and stopping to dig the fake leather case out of my pocket, and unfolding my Ferrari’s, and sliding them on. In case anyone had any doubts about which brand of sunglasses they were, the name ‘Ferrari’ was printed right on the top of the left lens, just screaming “Look how cool this guy is!”. That is until you pinched the sweet meat between your thumb and index finger in the joints of the sunglasses while trying to fold them back up and screamed like a schoolgirl. So long Ferrari fold-up sunglasses, we hardly knew ya….



Full blown child of the 70's and 80's...

    If anyone liked the Stop The Pigeon track I did, and if you’re feeling altruistic, it’s currently in a competition, and any votes would be very much appreciated. You can vote at the below link – apologies in advance, you have to register (free) for the site first, but it’s a good website that doesn’t spam, and a great place to find good music that people have made. Cheers, Nick.

    Fantastic post that could’ve described me as well, except I was exiting an orange Chevy Blazer and had the May D&F store brand Izod knockoff.

    I totally had the same pair (except mine were darker gray lenses than the ones above), and YES, you are so right about pinching your fingers!!!
