Wow!

I don't really like monochrome bumpers, but I do like the side pipes. That one is sort of a mixed bag for me. Definitely unique.

I could live without the fender skirts. They throw the whole thing off balance.

Eric, you missed the Buick 455. Where in the heck did he ever find fender skirts for a 7? Cutlass.

First thing that came to mind when I saw it was this car. It's a dog.

I think this might have been Huggy Bears car. It is about the right year. How many of you remember Huggy Bear without Googling him?

Bingo Tru-Blu. Since that was about 40 years ago, I will translate it for the younger crowd to Starsky & Hutch. Great show.

There is a striped tomato contingent that comes to the Springfield IL Rt 66 show every fall which I attend. They usually park next to the Opel crew. That show's a little too comedic for me, I like my 70s stuff mean, like Dirty Harry.

Same here - that includes the Rockford Files too.

I also remember having to let the TV "warm up" until the picture became clear.

And actually have to get up and travel across a wide swath of **** carpet to turn it on, ours was black and white until the mid 70's.
