I miss most all of it. Even the Ford in the background.

I notice the hood is up on the Camaro.

I was young in the 70's and I thought it was a great time to grow up. It seems like everything had a chance,, movies, cars, clothes, electronics, lot of stuff going on. Outrageous stuff that has standed the test of time.

80's was ok too, but the 90's and00's seem dull by comparison.

Could just be my perspective however.

Her hair is almost as big as they wore it in Texas back then!

70s cars my wife and I had: 70 Nova Coupe with 350-2bbl and Saginaw 4-speed, 74 Buick Skylark coupe, 74 Chevy Van, 78 BMW 320i, 79 Mazda RX-7 (fun, fun!). Also had a 76 Chevy wagon with 400 engine -- my "Family Truckster". Didn't drive it to Wally World, but did take it to Disney World. It got maybe 13 mpg on the highway.

1982 C-10 SWB pickup -- Unmolested base truck, original paint. Originally had 250 six and 3-on-the-tree
Now has 355 with Vortec heads & RamJet roller cam, TH350
Retired, but working part-time on 50s-70s cars and trucks.

The one I'm with now (on and off over the years but back together for more than 5 now) I've known since I was 14; she has ridden in probably every POS vehicle I've owned in my early years like the '63 Suburban with holes so big in the toeboards you could watch the front tires rolling and had to dodge the occasional rock thrown up that would hit the roof; she's been on "dates" with me where we went to the local Pick-a-Part ("here carry these tools"); and now on occasional weekends she rides with me in the wrecker while I'm out making new friends in ghetto apartment complexes - towing the cars of people that didn't want to be towed.

I guess she's a keeper?!
