"Cool flat top hair cuts and cooler convertibles."
Spring is officially here, and high school kids will soon be thinking of prom. Can today's Affton students could learn a few things from a 50-year-old home movie? Brothers Ed and Richard Mueller are in white jackets and bow ties to pick up sisters Tina and Ginny Sacco in this YouTube video. They head for the Affton High School prom in Chevy convertables "sometime in the 1960s," the intro to the video informs us. "Cool flat top hair cuts and cooler convertibles," said Nick Sacco, who uploaded it to YouTube. Do you remember prom in the 60s, 70s, 80s? What did you wear to the big dance?
