buick special 1962

 

The Buick Special was Motor Trend magazine's Car of the Year for 1962. It was the first American car to use a V6 engine. Road & Track was impressed with Buick's new V6, saying it sounds and performs exactly like the aluminum V8 in most respects. The Buick Skylark was also a new model for Buick in 1962.

Sixties Pizzazz

 

The idea behind this project is to present the Sixties in an interesting manner with as much audio and visual content as we could manage without slowing things down too much.

 

Unlike most Sixties websites that are a hodgepodge of decade wide information, we approached this project year by year. WIth each year of the Sixties including categories in history, television, movies, music, sports, books, comedy, technology and toys.

Beyond the nostalgia and retro feel for those who lived through the time, it is also designed to attract the younger crowd.

 

We have enjoyed some success in that endeavor as this webiste has become quite popular with teachers who use Sixties Pizzazz to get their Middle and High school students interested in our historic and cultural past by assigning projects and papers to this and our other PIZZAZZ websites.

 

These websites are safe for Middle school and above.

 

Other Pizzazz Sites

 

Sixties Pizzazz is part of a larger procress still under construction. It includes Fifties Pizass, Seventies Pizzazz, and the still beta of Eighties Pizzazz. They all are similar in our effort to make recent history fun and intersting for the next generation.
