Retro Photographs Sure To Spark Your Interests!

Written by Lyra Radford

The groovy era was full of boundary-breaking comedy acts, the musical genre was experiencing a revival, and even some of the best family television shows came out of the 1960’s and 1970s. Some of them promoted togetherness… others really drove it home just how good you actually have it. There is just so much grooviness to be grateful for right here!

Pictured here is William Shatner as Star Trek’s 'Captain James T. Kirk' posed by the Reactor back in 1967. This custom creation was built in 1965 by Gene Winfield for an ‘Autorama’ custom car show. Winfield also built the shuttlecraft for Star Trek. He then went on to build the Spinner flying cars for Blade Runner, and even the legendary 6000 SUX from Robocop! Too cool!

Star Trek is a science fiction television series that has become a major franchise since the days of its conception by Gene Roddenberry. The first tv series was simply called Star Trek (now referred to as "The Original Series"), debuted in 1966 and ran for three seasons.It followed the interstellar adventures of Captain James T. Kirk of the starship USS Enterprise, and his crew in the twenty-third century.
