Yea! Summer of 1976. My 2 buddies and I would go cruising. We'd each chip in a dollar for gas, get 6 gallons and cruise all night on it. Didn't matter who drove, my '66 Valiant, my friends '70 Maverick or '66 Mustang. All six cylinder cars, that still didn't get anywhere near the gas mileage of current cars.
We'd get quarts of Miller and Bud for 65 cents and we'd drive around, each with one on our lap. Try that today!
Tom or someone tell me if l remember right, in 1976 l was 11 and gas l think in chicago where l lived was 55 or 70 cents a gallon. Cigarettes was 55 cents a pack and model kits was 2.50 cents. l can never remember how much glue and testor spray paint was. l had to walk to the candy stor for cigarettes for my mom and dad.
