They say that if you can remember the Sixties you weren't really there. Well, up to a point. For no matter how purple hazy your recollection of that dynamic decade, some images stick in the mind forever.

Along with the revolutions in politics, lifestyles and music, the Sixties saw a radical reappraisal of design. And we have a range of prizes in our retro draw that reflect the style revolution that helped give form to the Sixties vision.

If you lacked The Knack, driving a head-turning car could go some way to redressing the balance. No car sums up Sixties chic more than the E- Type Jaguar. This 1964 3.8 coupe Series 1 is bright red, with grey interior, chrome aluminium dash, wire wheels and bucket seats.

Easier riders may prefer our two-wheeled style prize - a Harley-Davidson XLH Sportster 883. Sleek and powerful, its V2 engine, five-speed gearbox and low-slung clutch and break levers make it ideal for anyone who feels they were born to be wild, at least at weekends.

For anyone who saved their 7-inch singles from the Sixties we have the prefect prize - a mighty Wurlitzer 2000 jukebox. Invite your friends to turn out, drop in and stay tuned in the comfort of your own home. Definitely a hit.

In between discs your juke box jury might need a little refreshment. Tea could be served on a set of three Rotor tables. Courtesy of Purves and Purves, they come in black, lime green and purple lacquer, guaranteeing endless eyeball kicks. We have ten sets as prizes.

For the dedicated follower of fashion, stepping out in anything other than Chelsea boots was anathema. So we have 20 pairs of the genuine article as prizes courtesy of anello and davide, the theatrical footwear and costume designers who shod the Beatles.

For an extra dash of Beatles chic we have metal-rimmed sunglasses from Ray-Ban which owe more than just a nod in John Lennon's direction.

"Anti-style" icons, the Rolling Stones, helped record the soundtrack for the youth revolution way back then. Now, in the 90s, satisfaction will be guaranteed at the band's concert at Wembley on 16 July. We have 12 pairs of tickets to be won courtesy of Volkswagen, sponsors of the 1995 Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge European tour.

For a more sedate musical mystery tour, we have a boxed 3-CD compilation called The Sixties which offers 50 original tracks ranging from Donovan to The Yardbirds. Released on the Essential Gold label, it will have you humming and tapping your Chelsea-booted feet.

And the perfect Sixties book for your Sixties coffee table must be Hippie, Hippie Shake, the definitive (ish) guide to the sex and drugs shebang by Playpower guru and ex-Oz editor Richard Neville.
