Okay- and here's a Hardy Boys book cover earrings project...
You know you've got a great girl when she's wearing The Secret of the Old Mill earrings! (original text cover no less) :) 8)

And they have other books and merchandise to go with them. (Activity books based on The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries TV show. And of course, the figures above are the 1978 Kenner dolls/action figures ;) of Frank and Joe Hardy. Too bad they never got one made for Nancy Drew- at least not that I know of.)

And one can't forget The Hardy Boys' mode of transportation- the trusty, sweet '70s van! :) 8)

Those are all pretty sweet. But, I have to say, the earrings are my favourite. I'd be sooo into a girl with Hardy Boys earrings.

Here are some scans from a 1977 issue of Tiger Beat with pictures and articles on Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson and some appearances from Pamela Sue Martin as well.

Farrah Fawcett on the cover also caught my attention. She reminds me of Charlie's Angels and then Ryan O'Neil. (I'm not even going to get into what a so-called prince he is ::))

Not sure what this is necessarily based on, but here's a neat fan artwork of The Hardy Boys.

That seems to be based on a puzzle that was issued in the late-1970's that I believe was suppose to depict a scene with Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson from The Mystery of The Haunted House.

Great ideas!! I don't think I'd have the heart to do that to my books, but I LOVE it... Were they not for sale?? :(

And by the way, the purse was a little sad looking..IMO.
I'm not on here as much or I just come on for a few moments. So I trying to keep up with posts. Sorry for being MIA. I've been off on a mission with Frank and Joe! :)
