The Society of Cool!
Since the 80's i've had numerous scooters, but for a period of time from 93' to 2005' what with running a business and starting a family the scooters were non existent. The clothes and the music were always a constant part of my life.On reflection i always felt that there was something missing having been an avid scooter owner/rider! The lack of scooter for me was'nt a financial decision but more to do with working 7 bloody days a week,it would only have stood in the garage.Seems to be a lot of similar stories on this site, not the back to mod stories more the back to scooter stories. Have to admit its the full monty feeling again,complete mod feeling yet again. So whats your opinion on this 'Can a mod trully be a mod without a scooter'.....:-)
Sure would feel right if a sixties car. Saw cars turn up at moddingham (modern horrible family cars) and mods getting out all dressed up sixties style, seemed so fake to me! Now if had the right cars could have been spectacular.
JB's right , the first opportunity to move from 2 wheels to four , we took.For me it was a Ford 105e Anglia,then a Morris 1000 with wide wheels and twin carbs.Had my 7th scooter at the same time as the car , the car was always the favorite and the scoot quickly sold .One of the guys that had passed his bike test,even ditched his SX for a Bond Bug. The cars still had a personal identity, and to me, seemed like the nucleus for the costomising craze that started in the 70's.personally the mod thing had passed it's peak by my 18th. and had become more like a skinhead reggae party,the Smoothie was always more partial to a car,it was a status symbol and attracted a diferent class of bird to those with a feather cut and monkey boots lol
Feather cut and monkey boots? Sounds like Paul Weller haha
