Last year for neon?

When did the neon trend start and when did it begin to end? Who started it and who ended it?

I thought you were going to say Dodge is ceasing to make the Neon, in which case I would have praised the heavens.

Not sure but I do know that I had NOTHING to do with it.

You must have been a good boy...they stopped making them in 06'. In all fairness not a pretty car but it was a good car.

BTTT....

I remember thinking "Oh no, not that again!" when neon colors appeared in the 1980s. Didn't we see that in the late sixties/ early seventies?

I started it and I will end it when I am damn well ready to end it!

Whenever I see "neon", I always think of the well-circulated internet article about the rental car that got the nitrous treatment.

They're Back!

Hold onto your garters - they're back.

You haven't seen the new Park & Pipe togs?

This summer at Vail, I wandered into a high-end (what else - it's Vail) shop to discover racks of NEON clothing...for guys?

True - they're not pink. But, they ARE: white, bright yellow, cobalt blue and neon green.

I asked the counter-babe what's the deal? She looked at me like I was a Bozo (not far off), and explained - like, Duh? - it's what twin-tippers are now wearing.

Who knew?

Go skiing in Europe. Neon just never went out of style. Neither did rear entry boots, conventional skis, and one-piece suits!!

ahh neon- pray it never really comes back.

1984 Descente "Flash" premiered followed by Nevica's intro. 1985 saw it everywhere but it peaked in 1986-7.
