Let’s Talk Teen-Agers…The Good Ones

"They tool up their cars with triple carburetors, blast off to the drag strip, eat fried broccoli [!] sandwiches, and drink Coke mixed with ginger ale.  They like the lights low, the tempo hot, a real "bop beat" that lets the girls swing out and swirl their skirts.  They cut their hair flattop or pony-tail style, wear leotards and button-down sports shirts, trade bobby pins and football letters when they’re going steady.  It’s Zorch!  It’s crazy!  It’s teen-age life."
