What are some of your most prominent memories from these decades? TV, Movies, Toys, News, Fashion...whatever. The older I get, the more I'm getting nostalgic about these times. Your memories from the 70's, 80's, and 90's

I had just posted this in another forum topic but it brings back great memories from early 70’s


This and of course any jumps Evel Knievel did

My favorite memory from the late 80’s........ getting laid for the first time, in the front seat of my lifted truck, while parked out front of my girlfriends house.

I miss the huge mall arcade from the early 80s: pinball, video games, projector games, air hockey, billiards

Yep, that thing was called a Smoke Stack or something like that. A real hit at some high school parties.

The 80's where the best for me, all the cool toys i had, the nice cartoons and of course my C64 and all the games i had, along with all the free time to play them LOL

#22 4 months ago

The 90s were probably my second favorite decade of the 20th century behind the 70s.

The 80s we were glad when they were over.

#23 4 months ago

Loved the 70’s. 1975 in particular. Too young to drive a car but old enough to get in trouble.

The late 70's early 80`s are kind of a blur on the weekends. Thought I should run for Congress so I kind find out what happened back then.

The best thing about being young in the 70s and 80s were all the cool posters you could put on your wall.

Nothing says 70's better than this store, it's 10 miles north of where I live now.

You would have gotten teased mercilessly in my neighborhood for having that bike. Huffy bikes were right up there with toughskin jeans as being just about the uncoolest things you could possible own.

If you had cable television, you either had a set-top box with a rotary dial, or later on a "remote" with a long umbilical, and a row of pushbuttons....

And if you wanted channel 8... You could push in channel 8.... Or channels 7 and 9, together.

Out of the 3..70's would be without a doubt the best. Muscle cars everywhere you went. All the late 67's 68's 69's and early70's where out in force at night. Loud pipes and burning tires and smoke..what a time. Couldn't go down the main st w/o someone wanting to race. It was affordable and most every guy had one. And...you were able to actually work on them yourself (wrench) everyone wanted a Sun Analyzer Diagnostic It was truly a great time to be in your late teens or early 20's love my SK tools too.

#42 3 months ago

These are the early 80's cable boxes we had. I was lucky and had the remote one that I could sit on my table next to the couch.

Ha!! I had to read it again to see what you were talking about. But to answer the question, I was with my girlfriend in front of her house but I was a little worried her parents might see though. Another funny note about that time, as we were doing our thing a kid we went to school with came up to the truck crying his eyes out. He was looking for his dog that got away while he was walking it but he had no idea what we were doing because my truck was so tall and he couldn't see into the windows. Needless to say, that kind of put the kibosh on the whole evening

What I loved about the 90s, is that the homogenized 80s ruled by a puppet actor and his uptite wife were over. It was kind of a throwback to better times that were the 70s.

No, it's like if you were a teenager in the 1970s, then had to suffer thru young adulthood in the 80s (don't get me wrong, I had my share of hotties and did lots of surfing, but it was more about the overall state of things), then the 90s came along, and it was like we could relax and breath again.

Sure I get it. So when did she leave? Like 89ish....?
