Air travel did have a Golden Age. There was more space, classier interiors and bolder designs. You don't even have to go back to the 50s and 60s to see that. Here are some of the actual cabin interiors for the Boeing 747s in the 1970s. They are awesome.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.
Custom vans from the 1970s were all pretty strange creations by nature, but this re-bodied Volkswagen is unquestionably weirder than almost any of the "more conventional" mural covered shaggin' wagons we've ever seen.
Let's continue with the series of Car & Track reviews provided by Bajabusta. Hang on tight— plenty of tire squealing awaits!
Welcome to Down On The Mile High Street, where we admire old vehicles on the streets of the City That Rust Sorta Ignored: Denver, Colorado. I'm not even going to try to guess the model year on this thing!
"Apparently, no one told Ford about smog emissions, high insurance premiums, and the new legislation-sponsored safety laws."
The very nervous DOHC Lotus "Torqueless Wonder" 900 series engine powered all manner of crazy Lotus machinery over the years, and now here's one that will be melted into Chinese dishwasher parts any day now.
Earlier this year, we saw this '79 Datsun King Cab pickup in a Northern California self-service wrecking yard. Here's another one, in a different yard but with the same sad story: truly small pickups are just too small.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the City That Rust Sorta Ignored: Denver, Colorado. Yes, this car is a daily driver.
Before we North Americans called it a Passat, even before we called it a Quantum, the Dasher was one of the first water-cooled Volkswagens ever seen on these shores. Let's watch another vintage Car & Track review!
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the City That Rust Sorta Ignored: Denver, Colorado. I've been seeing this Cad in the neighborhood just about every day.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. What are the odds that two '79 Corvettes would live a mere two blocks apart?
Reviled as it may be nowadays, the '74 Mustang II sold very well; about 386,000 of the Pinto-derived Mustang rolled off the showroom floors that year, nearly triple the number of '73s that Ford managed to move.
Welcome to Down On The Mile High Street, where we admire vehicles found parked on the streets of the City That Rust Sorta Ignored: Denver, Colorado. Ford downsized the Thunderbird for the '77-79 models, but they didn't downsize the glitz!
The 1978 VW Rabbit sedan weighed only 1,955 pounds, or about a half-ton less than the 2010 Golf. Somehow, weighing so little, it managed to haul five normal-sized humans around... but this car's hauling days are over!
The fact that no specific mileage figures are mentioned in this ad for a pre-big-bumper Celica shows that it's probably a pre-Arab Oil Embargo release. This makes this "economy car" pitch for the sporty-for-its-time first-gen Celica a bit puzzling.
