I love the 70s
#1
I was 13 in 1969 and the 70s have always been my era I love the cars the music the ladies fashions (mini skirts, halter tops and bikinis, hip hugger bell bottom jeans) all very hot. I love everything about the 70s it was a great time to be a teenager. (even though my Father was a barber so long hair was a constant struggle) Every time I get behind the wheel of my 1972 Mach1 I slip back in time to an ere where things were better at least for me they were, I just put an Eagles tape in the radio and " I'M ALL READY GONE."

Yeah, I remember when I was shopping for my car in 73 it seemed the "Brother Louie" was playing on the radio all the time. I associate that song with my car now.

you old eff'r Big Grin yeah me too. At 12 and 13 I listened to Don Mclean and American Pie for what seem like every morning when the "clock radio" went off. I had previous on the farm experience driving big old Chebbie grain trucks and tractors.

My uncle bought a old bug that had been hit in the rear. We cut the back off and he let me drive it around as long as I stayed off the main roads. Ft. Bragg almost encompassed Fayetteville so I could almost drive to school on Army roads. I didnt get back into the love of cars until 71 when I went to live with my brother. But I can still remember one of my uncles Ranger buddies had a hot as hell wife and a 65 Malibu SS.

Three Dog Night -Mama Told me
three Dog Night- Joy to the World
Edwin Starr -War
Smokey Robinson - Tears of a Clown

The girls were awesome, music great, cars even more awesome

American Pie hell yes I played that 45 over and over till I knew every word. I still love that song and every time I hear it I think about those days and my first real love, and now she sits in my garage waiting for spring.

ahhh yes... I agree. Okay and House of the Rising Sun by Frijid Pink? Of course it was easy to lay claim to some of these songs as BEST, since the competition was The Carpenters, Neil Diamond and BJ Thomas (even as a kid I found it ODD someone call themselves BJ). Oh but here's one for ya.... I liked Clarence Carter' s "Patches" being a poor lil Bastage I connected with that song.

The Beatles "Let it Be" and Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4" were new releases when I first got my car...I would sit in the garage and fart around with the car ( couldn't drive it yet), and these two songs seemed to be on endless rotation on KLOL 101 FM or KILT 100 FM in Houston at that time. ( If ya' don't remember FM 100 being an AOR station back then...hand in your "Houstonian" membership card!)
Later, when I was able to drive ( finally!), I remember "Smoke on the Water" and "Smokin' in the Boy's Room" were always on...those songs ALWAYS take me back when I hear 'em...

Well I was born in 72 and grew up with 70s music (Zep, The Who, Thin Lizzy, Skynyrd) and had long hair, big collars and flares. I was young but impressionable. I still listen to 70s music, have longish hair, big collars and flares. I love it and don't see any reason in changing.

Similar age to most of you here. I remember an older guy where I had a part time job telling me that HS would be the best time of my life. I told him he was crazy. Boy that was a great time. About 75% of my music collection is pre-1976.

The gas crunch started durring my senior year. By spring the parking lot was full of nice stuff that had dropped in price. My best friend was delivering pizzas in a like new SS 396 Chevelle. He sold it and bought a very sharp '68 SS Camaro. He bought a second generation SS Camaro to drive while I painted his other car. All of those were 4 speeds which seemed like nothing special at the time. Only one friend had a "late model" Stang. He had a one year old green '72 Sportsroof.

Isn't funny how a certain song will bring back a memory. I distinctly remember parking in my 66 Mustang with my girlfriend Carolyn listening to the Rolling stones song ANGIE. Every time I here that song I have to smile.

I hear you (heard it too). Winter 1973, in the back of a hopped up '65 Mustang, flying down the Kennedy Expressway to the Arie Crown Theater to see the Guess Who. Eight track of Woman from Tokyo as loud as a few amps could produce. My girlfriend and I did not mind the lack of room in the back of Tom's Stang.
