Life in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s

GOODS ONE!

That photograph definitely depicts the time frame of when I was driving my 72 mint conditon Plymouth Satellite.

A real gas guzzler.

I remember in the late 70’s early 80’s when my friends and I would scrounge up change for gas money. Four or five of us would get in a friends car and cruise around town all night. Gas was around 75 cents a gallon. Everyone would chip in. We’d also chip in and get the cheapest beer we could find so we could have a lot of it. I think Ortleibs (spelling?) was the worst tasting one...but after about two or three beers, they started tasting good.

I can remember my dad say if ever the gas went up to a dollar, he didn’t know what we would do. Full service gas stations were everywhere and usually had gas wars between gas stations across from each other. Penny wars.
