    Car phones that were the size of a load of bread, CB radios, 8-tracks, rooftop TV antennas, white wall tires, regular gas, car hop service at restaurants, paying a dime at the swimming pool, calling "shotgun", spending all day with your friends in the Summer, sneaking home after spending all day with your friends in the Summer, ripping the cellophane from the record that you just purchased and broke several laws flying home to hear, your excitement when you heard something great on that record before anybody you knew was aware that it existed, listening to the mix tape for the first time that it took you four hours to make, busting out of church on Sunday afternoon feeling like you just got paroled...

    I got my first "mobile phone" in 1994. Big as shoe! I got my first "car phone" in 1995 in Boston. It took up the whole front seat console between seats. They gave me a mic attached to the sun visor so that I could drive and talk hands free. 8 Tracks always sucked! I miss seeing the rooftop TV antennas. Where did they all go? Who went up on all the houses and took them down?

    I bought the DVD set of Room 222. Later on in the 70s, one of my favorite shows was "James at 15, then James at 16". Great underrated show.

  10. #3210
    Seriously, you have to be my brother from another mother, marv. I was going to list that lineup but then I saw Sanford & Son ran against the Brady Bunch a couple years later and couldn't write anything that might indicate I wasn't Fred Sanford's #1 homeboy. But we watched those shows on ABC religiously as little kids.

    Also, Lincoln Hayes was one of our biggest role models on The Mod Squad. I still get excited when I see Clarence Williams III on something. And is it me, or did Peggy Lipton get prettier the older she grew? How did Q mess that up?

  11. #3211
    I have the Sanford & Son box set. Love it. Also have the That's My Mama complete DVDs. Need to dust them off, plug in my DVD player and watch them soon. I wish I could find Frank's Place (also a very underrated show) and Baby, I'm Back.

    Peggy Lipton was hot, hands down! She didn't even have to strip on the show to keep your attention. She was just mad, cool sexy to me. We all use to say "Linc Hayyeeess.....! LOL!

    I really liked "Baby I'm Back" and of course "What's Happening", along with Welcome Back Kotter" and "Barney Miller".

    Frank's Place was criminally underrated. CBS played around with its time slot and made it hard to find. Two seasons of the most African-American television that ever aired. Loved this show to death and haven't seen anything like it before or since.

    That was one of the better shows in the 80's. That and "Crime Story".

    I thought I dreamt the James dramas! Thanks for reassuring me. Seared in my memory banks! The kid who played James was a young actor with alot of range, I remember.

    Jer, I feel the same about CWIII! Case in point: Check out his toooo brief role in The Butler. And YES! Peggy Lipton did bring the pretty since Mod Squad. At the time, that's what hooked me on the show! Well, you know Q is like 300 yrs. old. So I wasn't surprised by the break up. Remember the rambling monologue he gave on MJ & the music industry a few years ago?

    And the spin-off of Barney, Fish (Abe Vigoda).

    Yep! I think that was Todd Bridges first role. Do you remember the fat kid that played on that show? He was hilarious.

    Fish was too funny. Both the show and the character. Abe Vigoda was born to play fish like Carroll O'Connor was born to play Archie Bunker and Sherman Helmsley was the perfect George Jefferson. ABC did not give the show the chance it deserved to catch on.

    That was Lance Kerwin. I think I really related to that show and to him because he was the exact same age as I was. I was also in high school at that time. I watched it every week. Lance also starred in "Salem's Lot" one of the scariest made for TV movies ever.

    "James" (Lance Kerwin) is not 15 anymore! LOL!

    Then going riding bikes with her across town where she lives. Buying her an ice cream, asking her if she likes you, cause you like her.........

  27. #3227
    Yep,and discovering that after you bought all that ice cream,not only were you not getting a kiss but at least three other dudes on bikes were buying her ice cream too...them chicks were players.

    I remember dragging a TV on the porch, ordering a pizza and watching the Final Four all by myself on a beautiful early '80s Spring day. If I had to count 10 perfect moments in my life, that would count as one.

  32. #3232
    That's what i'm talking about jerry,i used to get some comics,go sit on the front porch in the summer on a sunday and it would be so quiet like i was the only one on the whole block!!

  33. #3233
    Mine would be sitting in the backyard on a summer's evening with either my Dad or Grandad listening to Ernie Harwell calling a Tigers game.

    You mean the first morning after you just bought your first free-standing house?

    Another great moment was when I attended Columbus' riverfront jazz festival in its early days in the '80s. Three days with 500-600 jazz lovers just listening to good music while enjoying the breeze and watching Seagulls sail around on the breeze like they liked the music too. This went on for a few years until it became the Jazz & Ribfest. Now, instead of jazz fans listening to music in a little outdoor amphitheater, it's a crowd of 150,000 rib fans, some of which take time to watch music on four stages as they're dropping literally tons of trash in their wake. Parking costs a knot and you're lucky to find a spot within mile of the site if you get there early. The acts are bigger, the lineups are much more intriguing but I refuse to go.

    Early car air-conditioners. Never saw one these. I remember being on vacation in
    Florida in July as a kid... in a station wagon. It must have been 110 degrees in the car.
    The only air-conditioner we had was a rolled down window!

    Wow! I could walk there in five minutes from where I live. That place is always packed. I mean, sometimes I can't imagine how it's possible to get people from all of those cars into the bar. Let me see if my stick in the mud is interested in going.

    I will get you all the information. I know they are planning to have live Reggae bands and lots of Jamaican food.

    With the new Dolemite movie coming out, it made me remember another "film" that was popular at drive-ins at the time. Does anyone remember "Fritz the Cat"?
