Don’t you wish your parents were this cool? This adorable couple doesn’t just look cute together, they also know how to take care of the upkeep on their motorcycle. There’s something astonishing about seeing young love, especially when it blossoms into a lifelong relationship built around tearing around the countryside on a moped. These two sweethearts look cool in both photos, but there’s something classic about their style in the older picture. It’s amazing that cool fashion never changes, whether it’s back pants, a neckerchief, or an aerodynamic motorcycle. Now, how fast do you think that bad boy goes?

Just imagine it, you’re walking through the streets of a small town with a bag full of candy in hand. The full moon is out, and then you hear the beating of hooves down coming down the street. Out of the darkness you see two skeletal horses carrying their spooky riders right towards you - what could they be? In the 1920s this was a normal costume for people and their animals, not only were these costumes a simple way to celebrate Halloween without having to go all out. Although, wouldn’t you say that covering a horse from head to foot in a Skelton sheet is more or less going all out?
