Homeskoolin' Bonus "Super Echo Twin"

00:00 - Jamming away on the Silvertone
02:35 - '64 Ampeg Super Echo Twin ET2


You gotta admit...people really knew how to name shit back in the 50's and 60's...

I mean..."super echo twin"...how bad ass is that???

Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster

Vibrolux and Tremolux

Think about what Ford was coming up with:

Ford Galaxie 500...Mustang...Falcon....Fairlane

and then there was

Camaro (which a lot of people don't realize is a little used Spanish word for "friend")

AMC Rambler

Buick Skylark

Pontiac Tempest and GTO with fuckin' Tri-Power Ram Air

Plymouth Barracuda and Fury

Dodge Coronet with a goddamn Hemi Six Pack

I'm talking some bad ass names for some seriously awesome shit right here people.


Chris Craft

You get what i'm saying.....

or maybe it was just that all the cool names weren't already taken back in those days.

Now we have "Veloster"..."Tiguan"...."Prius"..."Swift"

We are doomed

and totally unrelated...
