Quoted from o-din:

I'm still trying to figure out what PF stands for.

PF Fliers, converse, red ball, I remember them all.

MEGO was our Xbox.
SpiderMan on PBS, Saturday morning cartoons, and Adam West reruns were our Marvel cinematic universe.

Everybody had PF Fliers, until Chuck Taylor Converse were the sneeks to have.

I wish I still had my Megos. I had several of their Planet of the Apes action figures, and the whole Star Trek crew along with the Enterprise set.

Quoted from pinfixer:

A vehicle with lap belts only was a guarantee that you're going to be worse off wearing it.

Someone in a giant station wagon T-boned me on the passenger side of my 1979 CJ-7 and I rolled three times. Lap belt only but I was wearing it. I remember the impact because it felt like my face was being stretched from the sudden change in direction. The passenger side was hit right at the door, and it bent the body all the way in to the transmission tunnel. Good thing I didn't have a passenger. Only injury to me was bruises where that lap belt held me in the vehicle while the world was spinning around. Without it, the impact would likely have sent me flying out of the Jeep through the flimsy soft top, and then it would have rolled over on top of me. So I think the lap belts helped in that particular crash.

If it weren't for Mego, we probably wouldn't have Robot Chicken!

Although I wanted to run faster and fly higher, I never owned them.

And even these with their flat soles and top rim that ate at your ankle, made it hard to get off the ground. We went to the store because they had a Hot Wheels section. With cars and track you could not get any where else. We sacrificed and bought the shoes too.

Found these in an old trunk in my parents garage. Almost the 1970s.

Take a pic of the actual album if indeed you physically found it. Anyone can do a google search.

Way too cool. Thanks for posting that, I don't think I ever would have heard it otherwise. All the new music I listen to these days is actually 40+ year old music, like The Sweet.....

I don’t think ownership is a prerequisite for this thread. Just nostalgia.
