No computers, 35 cent beer and cigarettes, 25 cent gasoline, walk the streets at night, leave your door unlocked while you slept, looting was stealing and it put you in jail, morality was at a high level, and most people went to church on Sunday.

Heck, you missed the best decade of them all, IMO,
The 60's.
The Beatles, The Allman Brothers ,Southern Rock, Woodstock, The British Invasion, Rock and Roll when you knew the words and could sing along , C.B .Radio's and Muscle Cars, Bowl games in which both teams had winning record and there was no corporate sponsor ship, The Space Race, Vietnam, "Tricky ####" Nixon, The Civil Rights Movement, The Kennedy's ,The NFL before it became the NFC and AFC, NASCAR with no stage racing and the fastest car and best pit stops won, Cassius Clay before he became Muhammad Ali, Henry Aaron's wrist vs Barry Bonds on steroids and you could count on the press, somewhat.
Did I leave anything/anybody out .My brain doesn't quite work as well now as when I was smoking a joint or drinking Jack Daniel and a real Coca- Cola.

The time before cell phones was great too, because when you made plans with someone they would almost always follow through. Lets say I told a friend I would meet them at the arcade at noon, they would be there. You just made plans and did it.

Yep, even with gas only costing 25-30 cents a gallon, a syphon hose was a must have in trunk if you were in school, and only working a part time job!!!;) I think the lowest I remember paying for gas when I got my fist car was 23 cents a gallon at about any local gas station, but right off the interstate, it was 25-27 cents a gallon:(... But even today, if you are traveling and need to stop for gas, just go into the town, and get it 5-10 cents cheaper a gallon than right off the interstate!!! ;)

Amen to that.
When people had respect.
Manners were required.
You could object to something and still be friends.
When patriotism covered 95%+.
Where athletes stood for the national anthem and understood how lucky they were.

Sure changes and improvements can always be made. But we all stood together.

Now, I see a civil war.

onetiredtiger, you put together a great list. I remember getting my first cell phone. I traveled a lot but was rarely out of town overnight. Calls cost about .30 cents a minute. My wife would call me about 10 times a day. That use to add up to a lot of $$. But the funny part was what she would call me about was something we could talk about that night. She called one Friday to see if I could take the next Friday off. Lol ??

For those of you who did not get a chance to live before computers, cell phones, social media and all of this new technology I have empathy for you. Technology can be a good thing but IMO it’s so often misused or abused.

Some of these things listed by onetiredtiger I would love to do without today. IMO It was great when you could leave your work at work and go home and have a peaceful evening. Now some of my clients will call me on the weekend or while I am so n vacation. Before pagers and cell phones we use to sneak out about lunch time Fridays to play golf.

For me the 70’s and 80’s were the best of times! I was very fortunate to have been raised by a mom and dad who loved each other very much. They were married for 62 years and and they dated for 2 years for a total of 64 years of sharing so much. Now people marry and divorce like they might change brands of cereal. Life was very simple. You spent a lot of time with your family , friends and neighbors. In most places people knew most of their neighbors.You cooked out with them , watched each other’s kids, if your neighbor was in the hospital or sick the other neighbors would take a meal or two over. In today’s world you can live beside a neighborhood and not know any of your neighbors names.

After reading all of the post there were many great replies to your OP.

onetiredtiger if you don’t mind I would like to add to your list.

God / Church were really meaningful
Gilligan’s Island
Marshall Tucker
Boston
Pic Nics
Family Reunions
Church activities
Back yard football
People seemed to care more about others and less about themselves.
Monday Night wrestling at Greenville Auditorium
Fishing
Neighborhood baseball games
Red Parker / Charley Pell and Danny Ford
The Paw
Friday night HS football a lot of people attended
Walking to school
China did not make 80 to 90 % of products
No Super Walmart’s
Going to Morrison’s Cafeteria
McAllister Square
Less traffic
I-85 was safe. Now it’s like being in NASCAR

70’s & 80’s Great Times. The 60’s of what remember were good years to.

Thank you to all of those who served in our Military during 60’s, 70’s & 80’s. You are true heroes especially those who served in Vietnam. Thank you for all who have or are currently serving in our Military for this awesome country.

I hope everybody has a great week that is coming up.

Go Tigers!

Not Vietnam but the early 70s Gas Wars! I try to explain to the grands that Pageland SC was on the SC/NC border and was ground zero for gas stations fighting each other for the LOWEST gas prices! I remember the Mustang station at the state line having gas at 17 cents a gallon! Taxes were 11 cents of that 17!

Wife & I bought our first new car at Performance Cars Ltd on Independence Blvd in Charlotte (right before the old frosty glass Lums!). A a periwinkle blue (she got to choose the color!) 1971 Fiat 850 Spider, two seater convertible, 4 on the floor, Pirelli radials on front disc brakes, a Weber carbed rear engine 903 cc rear engine that got 36(!!)) mpg! For - $2,400 new! Traded in a 1963 Galaxie 500 with a 390 and Holley 4bbl that got 11 mpg!

Back to the gas wars - the Fiat’s gas tank held 6 gallons. So, when it was on empty, I could fill up in Pageland on the way back to Ruby for $1 - a whole dollar! And drive close to 200+ miles on that tank.


Finally, I can’t believe no one had mentioned
(maybe everyone just wants to forget?) THE DRAFT!! Most every male from the early 70s remembers their draft number! I was #155 and got tapped to serve in late 1971. Best thing, next to getting married(!), that could have happened to me. Although it did cost me that Fiat. But that’s another story!

Go Tigers!

1967 and we were in high school. His father was head of the GM Training School in Charlotte and got a new GM car about every three months. His parents were out of town and we snuck a 1967 Bonneville out to go cruising when a beer truck on Selwyn Ave backed into the Buick’s rear quarter panel. We cut school the next day and City Chevy’s body shop bondoed and painted the repair in one day for two scared kids! We sweated for the next three months his dad had the car but he never found out about the wreck! At least we think he never knew!

My daughter (Clemson 2015) and I butt heads over how the media brainwashes you and that universities and schools have about a 13 to 1 ratio of liberal educators to conservative educators. Most kids come ready to change the awful world the the parents and grandparents created. They have to save the world and only biden, polesi, schumer and their cronies can make the right changes. She hates President Trump but can’t give me a good reason.

They seem to have forgotten about God, the Bible, discipline and sometimes life is not always fair. I can’t get her to understand all conservative White people are not racist. There are great Black, White, Mexican, Asian and other people and yes there are some racist that are White, Black, Asian etc.., It’s not a perfect world. You just have trust in Christ to lead you through life.

Good luck rogasm! Have a great week.

Lol ... they haven't forgotten about God and the Bible. However they hate the justification of The God and Bible to govern America when it was founded on separation of church and state.

For a more real example, is the hypocrisy of preventing the ability to have an abortion to "save babies lives" for God coupled with letting children starve because of "lazy" or "illegal" parents. They wish y'all would care about living breathing children as you do about whatever is residing in a womb.

Those of us who grew up in the 70s and 80s have been lucky enough to see Clemson become a power in the late 70s and the 80s and then its resurgence. I don't know if there's a more fortunate time to have been born a Tiger fan than the late 60s and then be able to watch games from the 70s until now.

Awesome post and all the follow up. We just said today how it would be so great to return to the world without cell phones and internet. Bring back real newspapers and journalism that tried to report facts.
We live in an angry, bitter society now that seems intent on destroying what made this nation great: faith, family, and hard work.

The 70's and 80's absolutely had better music, both rock and jazz. The fusion giants that emerged during those days were legendary: Al di Meola, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Jaco Pastorius, Michael Brecker, Arturo Sandoval, John McLaughlin, Weather Report, Return to Forever, and many, many others.

Whoa! Looks like we're breaking out some serious "rose-colored" glasses this morning. The best thing about those two decades was we were all a lot younger. lol

And if you refused to stand for our National Anthem, someone would be kicking your A$$ while calling you a dirty commie S O B with the onlookers getting in a punch or a kick as they should have!!!

Plus, I had one of those boxes that stet on my TV that would turn my outside antenna that was strapped/bolted to a 25-30' light pole that was concreted 6' in the ground, and that allowed me to get 6 or 7 clear channels from around the state, and Augusta. The stationary antenna without the rotary would only allow 3 channels that was clear enough to watch;);)

But for sure, if you kneeled when the national anthem started, and you stood back up when it was over, you would get your A$$ kicked!!!

Ah yes…the good old days when those that looked or acted differently were ostracized and publicly beaten. Good times.
