That 70’s Car Show

  • What you can expect: “The 1970s was a defining decade of change. The automotive industry was no exception. In 1970, the average car cost $4,000. By the end of the decade it was $6,000. The price of gas went from 36 cents a gallon to over a dollar. The era of cheap gas was over. The need for fuel efficiency and reduced environmental impact, coupled with the World Oil Crisis, permanently changed the automobile and automobile manufacturing. Imports dominated the automotive market because U.S. manufacturers were slow to adjust to this changing reality and changing consumer needs. Take a stroll through That ’70s Car Show and down memory lane. Remember the bad times and the good times. Remember the 1970s: A Decade of Change.”
