The Muscle cars dominated the 1970's but then the gas crisis slowed them down and Detroit had to reinvent itself and compete with the foreign car invasion. It was a very interesting decade and probably the last of the New Car Introductions in the fall. Gone are those days. Mario

The seventies sure brought more changes than most decades. Especially with all the government mandates for smog and safety. For me personally it was the last interesting decade for automobiles. I have no interest at all in cars after the seventies. As far as the ultimate muscle car, for me it will forever be the 1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS6. The LS6 could out run a Hemi and it did. That year of 1970 was really the last true year for muscle cars. It was down hill from there on. Cheers.

Great comments George, thank you. Sadly I agree the 70's were the turning point in style, muscle, and freedom. But there are many good cars around that we can still enjoy. Hopefully this year we can bring back the car shows. Cheers, Mario

Ahhhhh Mario,

Another walk down memory lane (while I still have my memory) and 1970 was the first year I could actually go to a dealer and order a new car. Like a kid in a candy store with 2 pennies looking at cars that cost dollars. I'm quickly introduced to the world of financing. Ahhh yes..the magic word.

Loans of up to 36 MONTHS? Are you kidding? That's an eternity. A car payment of $48 a month? Are you kidding?

Of course I have a steady job making $1.75 an hour. How much for that Boss 429? Or that LS6?

HOW MUCH?

I guess I'll just take that seafoam ugly green Camaro with the even uglier dark green interior with the SIX cylinder and 3 speed manual and dog dish hubcaps and you'll throw in the white wall tires? OH MAN! What a deal!!!!!!!!!!

Are you sre sure I can't afford that Hemi Cuda in Orange sitting on your lot? Can I finance it for 84 months?

UNHEARD OF YOUNG MAN, NO ONE WILL EVER FINANCE A CAR FOR THAT LENGTH OF TIME.

To quote WC Fields: Go away son you're bothering me.

Funny Rob, I went thru the same. Bought my first new car in Dec 1969 a Camaro SS financed for $68 month! I was still in the Marines and saved my combat pay from Vietnam for a year and put half down! I was single then so I could. Kept it for 10 years.

Hey Rob I love your colorful and humorous comments! You have a way with words coming alive and jarring the old memory banks with so much laughter! You must have been a riot in the race car pits working for the King!. Love it, keep it up! Mario

Rob, you crack me up. It is real good to see that there is still a sense of humor in today's "political non sense" climate. Cheers.

We have to keep our humor and laugh in the face of adversity George. I’m laughing and stirring up a lot of good memories with these posts. So Rob and George and all you gear heads, ENJOY!!! Mario
