...that took place during the Vietnam war. They are great especially seeing those huge crowds of soldiers going crazy over Ann Magret and Racquel Welch. One cool part you will like is they were broadcast on television without commercial interruption by the Chrysler Corporation.


I have to admit the Korean Kittens cracked me up. Let it get to at least 45 seconds. That Korean girl has really got soul.

Bob Hope owned a 70 Challenger R/T and was driven around in an Imperial limousine.

I got to see his show back then. He was beyond belief as an entertainer. I left the show feeling like he was a personal friend
