Stylish/CDP Theme Day

 Fuzzy Dice

June 1st is City Daily Photo Theme Day. This month the theme is STYLISH.

Remember fuzzy dice? Well they are still in style if you are lucky enough to own...

Cool, eh?

something akin to this vintage Thunderbird. The original fuzzy dice came in white ONLY, but NOW they can almost match the colour of many classic cars as seen here at the Sharon Car Show, a weekly event held on Saturday nights from May through September behind the East Gwillimbury town offices.

Lovely post! And that car rocks those dice!

Lowell said...

I do remember those. And our 2nd car was a 1957 Ford Fairlane...beautiful but a lemon! Your post brought back lots of good memories.

Jane Hards Photography said...

Oh I haven't seen any of these for years. Furry dice over the dashboard. Makes me think of early '80's UK and funk cross over music. What a kitsch stylish throwback find.

Debbie said...

Mary Hone said...

Oh ya, who could forget. Great shot too.

Gail Dixon said...

So cute! Love that the dice matches the car color. Looking at vintage cars brings back so many warm (and fuzzy-ha!) memories.

Tanya Breese said...

Fabulous car, can I win one with a throw of those dice please?

What Karen Sees said...

Love the classic cars. My husband and 3 sons restore and show classic muscle cars and so when we all get together as a family, the conversation usually revolves around cars!

LOLfromPasa said...

A blast from the past - Happy Days!

That is so perfect for the theme, EG!
Any bears in your neighbourhood? ;-)

hamilton said...

I never really 'got' the fuzzy dice, but in a vintage car such as this one, they would be de rigueur!

Tamera said...

That T-Bird is boss!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Isn't that fun! We have several car shows around here, too. It's a fun hobby for some - either those who participate and show, or attend!

edenhills said...

What a cool car! That is neat that the dice match.
