    one thing I remember is my dad getting a fucking perm in the mid seventies.
    As I look back on it now I realize it was an ineffectual and juvenile attempt to change the inner man by changing the outer appearance.

    other than that, not many "good" memories of life in the '70's...dad fucking off to another state and woman, having to deal with a manic- depressive mother and her suicide attempts, having to go live with the asshole after mom failed another suicide attempt and ended up in the hospital for 5 months as the drugs she OD'ed on wore of..
    yup lot's of great memories....
    lived for three months with no electricity and eating potatoes and mac -n- cheese because daddy wouldn't pay support because he was feeding some other cunts kids..
    my dad was a fucking dickhead...

    so glad I was introduced to Lucy in 1976 and she changed my life for the better and I will never attempt to change the inner man by superficial outer appearance.
    Never dyed my hair, never will.

    although at fifteen lost my virginity to a 23 year old and fucked with her all summer, so still some good memories... but family life....LOL... fuck that!

    Both Morris and Austin made models of the car here, as well as the larger engine 1300 which had the same body. Both companies were part of a larger group, BMC, later BLMC, then British Leyland. My dad was very pro British in his car buying habits, even though these weren't particularly good cars.He was a partner in a small business, and one perk he got was to change the car every 18 months or so. We had a 2 or 3 of these over time. My mum had a mini traveller, with wooden trim, another BMC. Since as I said before I nearly died in a 1300, my memories of them are a bit tainted.

    My folks split up in the early 70s. For me as a kid it was pretty traumatic, but I won't go into details. Cost me a few years of shit though as a teenager. My memories up to about 1971 though are mainly good despite some troubles - the car crash being the worst.

    I just thought you were in your mid 30's, that's all, no need to get your knickers in a twist over it.
    you could actually take it as a compliment if you chose to.

    I use to lay in front of something like this and listen to music for hours.

    When I was really little, someone told me that the doors on the front were hiding the tiny band inside that was playing the music.

    WTF???
    those songs aren't "Looney Tunes" Looney tunes were cartoons, most of which were made looonnnng before any of those songs...
    what a cheap rip-off of a classic name.

    I do remember that my brother and I would lay on the floor to watch TV and have "elbow fights" for space and then one Saturday morning my dad got pissed and put a tape line on the floor and designated who had which side...lasted all of about 30 minutes. prolly around '71.

    No idea if you guys in the US or Canada had these - The 'Hitsville' LPs were cheap, the songs were all hits but cover versions, some better than others.
