Those were the days....my first car was a beat up 65 Mustang fast back with 289 three speed. I "jacked it up", put thrush pipe on it and had a string that went to the four barrel through the dash board that we installed and when we went buy the chicks walking home from school you could pull the string and the that four barrel sound would kick in. Oh you ask why didn't you just hook the carburetor up correctly, still don't know today, goofy times. Sometime when one of my old buddies and I are driving down the road one of the will say, "Schanne, hurry pull the string" there some girls and we all start laughing. One nice thing about that old stang is that the back seats folded down and it made a bed like area in the back...if this stang is a rock'n don't come a knock'n!!

I was born in the very tail end of the 70's (Oct '79) so some of the things that have been mentioned I do remember but not all pertain to me. A big thing that I remember is riding in the back dash of our Delta 88 and my parents would slam on the brakes and we'd roll off and land on the floor. Kids weren't in car seats heck they weren't even in seatbelts in the back seat. I would also drive my dad's car when we went to the deer lease. I'd sit in his lap and steer and he'd control the gas and brake. If he was in a good mood he'd let me sit in his lap until we got to the gas station. The cops would congradulate you for parking straight. Do that these days and your looking at a huge fine and possibly jail time. I think that's the problem these days, kids have been sheltered and guarded from everything so they didn't toughen up as they grew.

I grew up poor. My dad worked a total of 43 days in 1984. Hunting was necessary. I learned to hunt when I was 5. Try to give a 5 year old hunting lessons these days and you are called a bad parent for allowing your child to even touch a gun. Forget the fact that you are right there with them and it's not loaded when you are walking and the safety is on.

Who here as a child of the 70's shared urinal time with famous/unfamous 70's icons?



Not a urinal, but my greatest iconic memory in the 70's was sharing an elevator ride and talk with Bobby Orr at MGH Boston. I was frozen...it was probably like seeing Jesus.

where was my polaroid camera!?!! got his autograph on my shirt though.

please...don't ask who Bobby Orr is, and don't say 'oh the bank commercial guy'...I'd have to kill ya.

Put it this way... he was to Ice Hockey in the 70's, what Jimi Hendrix was to Guitar in the 60's.

Cord, the Debbie Harry crush didn't start for me until 1980 with "call me". I was anti-disco and shunned Blondie when I first heard 'heart of glass'. but once I turned teen, all bets were off...and the music came second to 'hot chicks singing'. lol

If UFC was around in the 70's, I bet some of the fighter's walk in songs would be Iron Man from Black Sabbath , and there's nothing wrong with that.

I LOVED that show. Imagine losing the instructions to your super suit!




Thankfully he did lose them otherwise he may have been currupted like that other individual who also had the suit and the instructions. Was a great show.

No way Ed ... I am envious. Bobby Orr is my greatest hockey hero of all time and why the Boston Bruins are my favorite hockey team of all time. I had a Bobby Orr doll when I was a kid and I have a some even now as an adult. I wear the Boston Bruin jersey with pride. Bobby Orr was and is the greatest player of all time and more so then my own Canadian and Edmonton native Wayne Gretzky. You are correct Ed, it would have been like meeting Jesus.

Thankfully sticking as a Boston Bruin fan I was able to also enjoy Ray Bourque (fellow Canadian) who I consider one of the greatest defensemen of all time. When he left to go for that last chance at a Stanley Cup, I was happy he got it so that he could retire and consider his hockey carrier full.
