Sentimental Sunday - Relive the 1970's

Sentimental Sunday is a daily blogging prompt at Geneabloggers.com used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites. To participate in Sentimental Sunday, simply create a post in which you discuss a sentimental story or memory about an ancestor, or maybe even a family tradition that touches you.

I was born in 1959 and grew up in the 1960's and 1970's. As a child in the 1960's I did a post on the 1960's. As a teenager and newly married in the '70's, I wanted to do a post of the 1970's.

Cars of the 1970's

If this is about cars of the 1970's, why did I put this photo of a 1967 Ford Falcon? Because that was my first car and I drove it from 1975-1980. I loved this car. It had one problem...it had no air conditioning and the heater didn't work. My uncle sold his 1967 4-door Ford Falcon sedan to me for $600.00. I drove it through high school and our first years of marriage. It kept me safe through my teen years and drove me (and a lot of my friends) around. I would love to have one of these now in perfect condition!




















This 1967 or 68 Ford Mustang convertible was just like my best friend's car while we were in high school in the 1970's. Her's had white leather interior with a white rag top. I specifically remember riding in a homecoming parade in that car. We hung signs on it urging our team to win. She accidentally wrecked it in her senior year.



















This is a 1970 car. Back then they made them BIG and LONG.

















This is a 1971 model. One of the muscle cars of the 1970's. Look how long that front hood was!















This is a 1972 convertible. Another long and big car. They drove like sailboats!
















This is a 1973 Volkswagen stationwagon. My husband had one like this when we started dating. It was a dark blue one. All I remember about it was that he had added a stereo with speakers and he had wires run EVERY WHERE! I had to be careful when I got in not to pull a wire out of something or get my feet tangled up in wire.




















This is a 1972 Gran Torino from Ford. This was the first car Stan and I bought when we got married. Ours was gold with black interior. It was a fun car to drive although it looked sort of like a muscle car so I wasn't really in love with it. But it was the first car we ever had that had air conditioning. We traded it in for a bare-bones-but-brand-new Datsun cheapo about 1980 or 1981. It didn't have air conditioning but was automatic. (I couldn't drive a manual for a long time and might not could do it now.)














This is a 1973 station wagon. My Mom had a great big, cream yellow station wagon like this. I looked at a great big station wagon like this one time in the 1980's and they drove like big boats! We didn't get it.

















Here is a 1974 Gremlin.















This is a 1975 Honda Hatchback. My sisters got brand new ones when they started driving. They were only about $3,000 @. My parents signed for them but the girls made their own car payments. They drove the hound out of their cars!

















Here is a 1975 car. With a two door on these big cars, the car doors were so heavy! I never liked having a 2 door car because of that. I might use the back seat a few times a week but I was opening that heavy door every day!











This is a 1976 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. I had a boyfriend whose parents bought him one for his birthday. It was such a nice car with white leather interior, turquoise and white vinyl half top.




















This is also a 1976 car.


















A 1977 MG Midget. I had a boyfriend who had one of these. The least practical car you could ever have! It's too small to be comfortable, too small to carry anything and just plain too small. It was a dangerous car too. Being a sportscar people tend to overdrive them...they go too fast and hit corners too fast and yet there is absolutely no protection if you have a wreck. Sure enough, he wrecked his and totalled it. Thank God he wasn't killed!



















Here is a 1978 Camaro. Another very popular muscle car. I hate muscle cars! I always have. It's like the owner is having to prove something and gives the driver a stupid reckless and dangerous attitude. I've never found it attractive.













This is a 1979 Mercedes. My Mom and Dad had one of these. Brand new it cost over $20,000 and I thought my parents had gone crazy paying that much for a car! You could nearly buy a house for that! Of course, now, if you could buy a brand new Mercedes for $60,000 you would be doing good! And, yes, you can still buy houses for $60,000 (you can here in upstate SC).
















Here is a Bob Barker beauty (I think) with a '70's Vega. My sister, Elaine, had a Vega for her first car. It was a 2 door version and was blue. She had this until she got the Honda Hatchback.



Fashions
As a teenager during the 1970's I vividly recall the fashions of that era. I scoured the Internet and found photos of things I remember from the 1970's.

Remember the plaid maxi skirts with boots, turtleneck sweaters and velvet jackets? Most of the girls in my high school wore this for the Homecoming Football game.

















And remember how we wore cut off blue jeans (men and women) for shorts! The guys I knew even wore them for swimming. We girls liked them shorth with the ragged edges. I even hand embroidered mine.







And talk about shorts! We liked hot pants!





I also remember the suede and fringe jackets and boots. I had a fringed suede jacket and the moccasin boots.




Here's a man's fringed vest.



I wore them with blue jeans and these kinds of peasant shirts with the embroidery and cinched necks.









We wore high waisted designer blue jeans.





The guys wore these bluejeans.



The boys in high school went through a faze of wearing these striped polo shirts.







Here are some tennis shoes that look like the ones that were popular.




Men and women wore platform shoes. I had a pair of sandals just like these.



















Corduroy pants were popular for men for casual wear, as were corduroy sports jackets.





Men's polyester dress slacks were for dressier occasions. And the wild colors, contrasting outer stitching and plaids were popular.





And held up with a white belt.



As you can see patchwork was popular in pants, skirts, dresses, shoes, pocketbooks.



Here are a pair of patchwork suede shoes.



Polyester leisure suits were in every shade of the rainbow!











Talking about polyester and pastels...tuxedos were in all the rainbow colors and had all kinds of ruffled shirts.



And the polyester evening dresses for the Prom were popular in my high school. I had a dress just like these in dark teal.




Long sundresses or sleeved dresses in swiss dot were popular too. My Mother actually made a lovely blue swiss dotted long sundress for my sister to wear to her Prom but we also wore it as bridesmaids in each other's weddings. My sister was married in a long white sundress with the ruffles that were so pretty for a young girl! See the photo above of the tuxedos. The girls in the long white dresses and the girl in the long green dress are wearing dresses in this style.

For going to the disco, men wore polyester slacks, polyester shirts with opened necks, leisure suits and platform shoes.





At the disco, girls wore polyester dresses with varying hemlines, jumpsuits, bell bottom pants with halter tops, etc. And platform shoes!





























I loved these halter tops for the summer.



Hemlines were up and down in the 1970's. From mini-skirts to maxi-skirts. I had them all.











Remember the Member's Only leather jackets? Stan had one.



And the suede coats with fake lamb's wool.





I remember these sweaters on boys too.



I loved the high waisted slacks and trousers.





The crocheted, knitted look was in too. Shawls, ponchos, long sweaters, etc.





Here are some leather pocketbooks from the 1970's.



I had a fold over patent leather purse exactly like this one.







I had a purse just like this except in different colors.



The puka shell necklaces for the boys were a fashion.



And, finally, the bathing suits of the 1970's. I particular liked wearing the maillot bathing suit like these.











Here is the 1970's bikini.




Hairstyles
Being a teenager of the 1970's, I remember those hairdos well! With the advent of blow dryers, curling irons and hot rollers back in those days and it really changed the look of hair. When you didn't have to sleep with wet hair on hard rollers, it made a real difference. You could wash your hair in the morning and blow dry it, then use your curling iron or hot rollers while you put on your makeup and Voila!

Here is the long hair style with the feathering at the sides enhanced with a curling iron. One of the women on Charlie's Angels had her hair like this.


Here is a photo of the original Charlie's Angels. All three hairstyles were popular. I had the Sabrina look a couple of times.


Here are the famous Farah Fawcett hairstyles. Those wings!









People think the "do-rag" is a modern invention? Well, you are wrong. It's actually a very old way to keep sweat off your head. But it became a fashion statement in the 1970's and has come back around.



Bo Derrick and her braids from the movie "10".



Warren Beatty wore his hair in so many styles during the 1970's and all of them became imitated by the everyday male.







Here are the rock 'n roll styles. I LOVE long hair on men if it's neat and clean. I guess this is why!





Afros were really popular for blacks and whites. For black people, the bigger the 'fro, the better!. Some even wore their hair picks in their hair all the time. I had to have a permanent for an afro hairstyle in the late 1970's. I didn't have it for very long though, it didn't suit me.





Well, if you wanted long hair but lived with conservative parents, this was about as long as Dad would tolerate it. I saw many a young man with a hairstyle like this.



Here are the different lengths of the turned under hairstyle. I had a hybrid of this style. I had the Farah Fawcett winged bangs on top but the turned under and length like this on bottom.







I also had this perky short haircut made famous by the Olympic skater, Dorothy Hamill.




Houses
I got online and found some 1970's homes and furniture and the 1970's decor. Here is what I found.












































































1970's wallpaper










1970's Shag carpet




1970's bathrooms











1970's Kitchens

















1970's Furniture








































1970's Gadgets





















Does any of this bring back memories? It does me! My thanks to people who put these photos on the Internet so we could all enjoy going back in time.


When I was eighteen years old (and newly married) in 1977, my youngest sister, Melinda, took some photos of me at my Grandparents home in Converse Heights. They turned out to be some of the best I had from that time in my life. I recently did these digital scrapbook pages about being eighteen years old.







Just like the 1960's inspired me to do a '60s scrapbook, so did the '70's. Again, I tried to pick papers and elements that had 1970's colors, patterns and designs. Here are pictures of my 1970's scrapbook.











I had major surgery when I was 11 yrs old in 1971. This is about that. I drew the cartoon based on one I saw on the Internet.
























Stan in his Prom tuxedo. It was very fashionable at the time but pretty funny now.



A school dance that I went to with a friend.





I have, and still have, a nice set of silver and turquoise jewelry. I've always loved it. It was very popular during the 1970's.



Those are actually my peacock feather earrings that I've had all these years.



My mother made this long halter dress for my 9th grade graduation. I was very proud of it.



Our junior high school



























Our high school years

























































I hope I've prompted some memories in you!
