List Rules Vote up the dads who were so tubular they'd have made New Coke look cool.

The era of Purple Rain, gigantic hair, and Material Girls, the 1980s were a time for everyone to flaunt their styles to match the glossy, neon world around them. Everyone felt hip at the time, including your dad. While that assertion may sound ridiculous, what isn't are these pictures of cool dads in the '80s, killing it in their mullets and track-suits like no one today ever could. 

Do you see your father in these cool dad pictures from the 1980s? Maybe you were the cool dad in the '80s, in which case, treat yourself to a slippery nipple. During a time of nuclear fears, a recession, and brick cellphones, the father figures here managed not only to kept it real, they kept it cool.
