Is a period correct classic outfit.

Smaller hat for '64. That wide brim makes it look like a zoot suit.

It's one of the reasons I wanted to dump my 60 Chevy for a 47, but regardless smaller Fedoras have been ripped off by those "rock" kids these days.

I don't think they had cell phones in 1964.

You need to have a tailor tighten up that jacket.

It's from the thrift store. These old cars are where most of my dinero goes. lol. But yeah I'll do that eventually, especially for my purple "zoot suit" http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d28/Bowserfire/IMG00128-20091208-2306.jpg
This thing is a tailor's nightmare.

You need a "Johnson 1964" bumper sticker on that car for the true authentic feeling.

After paying 2,000 for chrome that idea is less than ideal.

Inside the rear window. Just scotch tape it in. That's how my friend put "Reagan '84" stickers on his Town Car.

I drive my STS with basketball shorts on, Miley Cyrus blaring, and a "just crawled out of bed, going to go get some Gatorade for my hangover and maybe some breakfast sausage" hairdo.

You should have bought it, although the shorts and short sleeves are a bit dicey with Tse Tse flies about! A true safari hat (as opposed to a pith helmet) with a real zebra (pronounced zehb-rah) skin hat band would also have been nice!

A typical Cadillac driver in 1964 would more likely have had a Goldwater sticker (if he had a sticker at all).

Actually the parties were reversed in 1964. Also Cattlemen seemed to like the 64' Cadillac (seems like they owned a fair share of them) and being a Texan Johnson pulled in their votes.

Sort of. Johnson won largely on the strength of pledging to carry on the Kennedy legacy (for better or worse). His victory in 1964 and subsequent Great Society programs, including civil rights legislation, helped split the old Democratic coalition and helped created the modern Republican Party. Escalating the Vietnam War helped, too. Look at the 1964 electoral map:

http://www.presidentelect.org/e1964.html

The Democrats had already lost the Deep South, which had been reliably Democratic since the end of the Civil War. Had Johnson not been a Texan himself, they would likely have lost Texas, too.

However, even in 1964, the Republicans were the party of Wall Street and Old Money, Cadillac's prime clientele. Neither would have been so gauche as to slap a sticker of any sort (OK, maybe a country club pass in the corner of the windsheild) on their car, as politics was not considered "polite conversation".

We can safely assume both Democrats and Republicans drove this type of car which, by this time, didn't have all of it's prewar elegance.

Not really, Republicans were the Cadillac drivers, with Democrats favoring Lincolns and Jewish people (mostly Democrats favoring Imperials). by 1964 both coasts had come to know Mercedes-Benz and the brand was favored by members of both parties. Cadillacs were far less prevalent in the Mid-West where Buick Electras and Olds 98s held sway.

By the way, my paremts were good friends with some people who lived next door to Barry Goldwater in Phoenix ..... he drove a Buick Electra!
