Hey, what about us Beach Girls? I'm doing pretty good with that checklist, except for the California boyfriend and the Corvette. I even "Shut Down" a few wannabes who challenged my Chevy Nova at a light, so I consider that a drag race!

Thanks a bunch, Surfer! I took your advice re dressing like my favourite Beach Boy and now I've been sacked from my job for turning up for work wearing a blue bath robe with my belly hanging out.

I almost qualify! Owning a Sting Ray is my Achilles heel though - no room in the garage unless I sell the Rolls Royce or the Jensenů

I've done numbers 5-7.  Numbers 1,2,8, and 9 are reasonable enough (Not sure how much I want to dress like a Beach Boys though lol).  I'm not getting anywhere near a California Girl unfortunately and there are many cars I'd rather have before a Stingray.  But it's a good list!

4. Own a Corvette Sting Ray


My step-father owned one (red 63 spilt-window) and in summer 1965 we drove from Dallas to El Lay in it (really cramped)
We lived in the San Fernado Valley so I was pretty near Brian when he was recording Smile.

Does that count??? I need to know. 

Oh, and do I need a GTO to be a Monkee?

3. Have a California Girl as your Girl Friend


My wife is from Washington State - thats on the Pacific Ocean and just Oregon in the way.
But she may frown on me following this rule.

I do have a red striped shirt sorta like Brian wore in those Western Recorders pics standing next to Chuck.
and I have a green one too. If I could find a Pinto-print pull-over sweater like he had I would wear that in public too.
