Let’s Talk Teen-Agers…The Good Ones
"They tool up their cars with triple carburetors, blast off to the drag strip, eat fried broccoli [!] sandwiches, and drink Coke mixed with ginger ale. They like the lights low, the tempo hot, a real "bop beat" that lets the girls swing out and swirl their skirts. They cut their hair flattop or pony-tail style, wear leotards and button-down sports shirts, trade bobby pins and football letters when they’re going steady. It’s Zorch! It’s crazy! It’s teen-age life."

Found a stash of these beauties in a North Hollywood, CA warehouse in the late 1970s. They worked well and were ever so dorky.
