Good questions.....

1. Clothing - Parker Coat with the orange-trimmed hood inner lining.

2. Sweet - Wham Bars.

3. Soft Drink - Quatro - I thought it tasted rank, but as it was exclusively an '80s thing....

4. Car - Rover SD1 - Luxury and poor build-quality. That's the spirit!

5. Aftershave - Old Spice - I know it was probably more of a '70s thing, but it's '80s for me.

6. Toy/Game - Tomytronic 3D 'Thundering Turbo' - the white one.

7. Snack - KP 'Outer Spacers' Crisps

8. Place/Venue - Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre, Medway Towns, Kent - always referred to at the time as the 'Savacentre', because that was the name of the dominant supermarket (now Sainsburys) in the centre.

9. Word/Saying - "E.T. Phone Home."

10.Film - 'Gregory's Girl'
A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist.
