COME CRUISING THROUGH THE '60S & 70S.

Byline: Daily News

Those were the days . . . cruisin' on the boulevard, Mustangs and Beetles, Beach Boys and the Beatles, women's lib and Playboy bunnies, drive-ins and malls.

Take a nostalgic trip back to the days we thought would never end, the 1960s and '70s, in today's fourth installment of our Millennium series, ``Valley: Generations of the Century.''

Recall the rantings of Wolfman Jack, revisit the cruisers' playlist in your ``Pink Cadillac'' or was it a ``Pink Thunderbird,'' but watch out for ``Dead Man's Curve'' and those ``Forty Miles of Bad Road.''

Forget downtown department stores, hit the mall and see how through a succession of developments - from Panorama Mall to Topanga Plaza to the Galleria - the Valley perfected a business concept into an art form.

It was a booming era as orchards and farmland gave way to housing tracts, freeways and malls. An age when TV started broadcasting living-color images of the carefree lifestyle in sunny Southern California to snowbound easterners and the myths of kooks and crazies shocked the sensibilities of a staid nation.

Those were the days we thought would never end.
