Miami Vice: 30 Years of Crockett, Tubbs, and Pastels
On September 16, 1984, two dreamy gelled-up cops came to our rescue. Detectives Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs, members of Metro-Dade Police vice squad, vowed to rid Miami of its criminal ills, taking on pimps, cokeheads, and mob bosses with bad ass moves and bad pastel suits.
Today marks the 30th anniversary of Miami Vice, the NBC '80s hit that made Don Johnson a superstar (once upon a time) and forever cemented Miami as the capital of neon, kick ass cars, and bromance. Who didn't want to be besties with Crockett, living on a sailboat guarded by his alligator, Elvis? Good times.
Rightfully so, the Internet is happily traveling down memory lane. Here's a collection of
some righteous pics from some Vice forever fans.
