In my early days on the streets, I kept quarters in the ash tray of my car in case I needed to pull over and use a pay phone.  I actually carried a copy of the yellow pages and phone book with me.  Damn, that makes me feel old.

I remember when pay phones were a nickle, than a dime.
I never used one after they hit a quarter because that was just outrageous.

@FoFa:


I am being careful not to tell how much I remember, that can really date myself.  BUT, I do remember being able to fill up my 1975 Chevy Vega for $7.00.

I had a 72 vega, traded my 69 Toronado for it when I got laid off because I afford the 56 cent premium gas for it. That and the 454 only got about 8 MPG.
Mine was burnt orange with black strips and a spoiler.

Like this only orange.

I remember my 8 track case.  That thing was huge and it went everywhere with me.

@kingwooddiscgolf:

I was the odd man out and bought a cassette for my car, I didn't own an 8-track.
2 cassette's were smaller than 1 8-track.
I could put them in my glovebox rather than have one of those big 8-track holders or just allowing them to travel around the car like my friends.

My Vega only came with an AM/FM, so I installed an 8 track in it - I thought I was hot stuff cruising down main street playing ZZ Top and BTO 8 tracks.

I got the cassette player when they came out.  My first unit was a Jenson with an amp and pioneer 6x9 coaxials.  That thing could thump 2112.

My vega didn't have a rear deck (hatch back thang) so I had to install 5x5's on the sides.
My vega also only had am AM radio, so my cassette deck had an FM radio plus the tape deck.

Crank Windows
Manual door locks
Digital was not even a word then.
If I wanted to know something, I had to go to the library and find a book and read it.
