As soon as I saw that news report, I knew he was guilty of the crime and so did the cops. In 1970 no hippie called anything "groovy".
I thought the same when I read the book.

scooter pooping is just cruising in your car.

My honey reminded me of another one today, "Psych!" as in "would you like a bite of my ice cream?" then hold it close to them, then at the last second yank it away and say "Psych!"

Put that in your pipe and smoke it! (Used to declare the end of a conversation definitively.)

That was more of an '80s expression. Like bitchin'.

Another one I can remember now is "that's not my bag." Meaning, I'm not interested in that.

I’m a bit late to this party, but here are a few that haven’t been mentioned:

This is the pits! — I loved that one, but, by the 1980s, it was completely usurped by the less-elegant “This sucks!,” which has retained its dominance for the past four decades.

Sin bin — A hippie van (usually a VW Microbus), presumably for what went on in the back when it was parked. Only old people (i.e., those over 30) thought those were cool.

Wagon — Any vehicle. Remember “Chevy Van” by Sammy Johns? “Gave a girl a ride in my wagon...”

Pop a boner — What happened when we teenage boys fantasized about giving a girl a ride in our wagon, if only we were old enough to drive, and had a wagon, and weren’t such nerds that we could attract a girl such as the one described by Sammy Johns.

Screaming Chicken — The Firebird on the hood of the Bandit’s Trans-Am, a car to which every self-respecting teenage boy in my Georgia high school aspired, unless they preferred a pickup truck with jacked-up wheels and fog lights.

That sends me! — What I’d tell my artsy friends would happen when I listened to those deep, mystical, philosophical songs by the Moody Blues, late at night, in the dark, under headphones, with the volume cranked up. In other words, I blissed out. “Timothy Leary’s dead...”

Freaks — What my nerdy, artsy friends and I called the stoners in our high school. “Stoner” hadn’t made it to our town in Georgia yet, for whatever reason.

Have a nice day! — Not really slang, but it accompanied the ubiquitous yellow Happy Face. (Hmm... Was that the first emoji?)
