By the time the 80's hit I was starting my 30's.

I had to put up with:

The dying throes of Disco.

Goofy looking large cars with terrible gas mileage.

Gas at about $ 1.00.

Flashdance and the leggings craze

Women with extremely large hair

Boom Boxes (aka Ghetto blasters)

This was great, but it's "psyche", not "sike".

Melmac was a dinner plate made of a hard plastic type of material that seemed like a fake kind of stuff to those of us who were used to breakable plates. Melmac where Alf was from was sort of a take off on fake stuff.

Those "goofy looking large cars" were the standard size car from the beginning of automobiles until the 70s when congress decided they knew more about how to build a car than the automotive engineers. So a lot of us considered those little cars to be the goofy ones. I owned a 77 Chrysler New Yorker that was rear ended at a red light by one of those smaller cars. The poor guy in the smaller car had to crawl over the seat to get out his back door because his front end was smushed so bad. I didn't even get a scratch on the chrome bumper of my full size car. In the late 70s Chrysler was in need of money due to the lack of sales created by the EPA's rules for cars that didn't sell well to the public and the government was called upon to guarantee the loan they needed from the banks. In exchange congress forced them to build smaller cars which no one wanted except maybe a few enviro-nuts. They also insisted they build only front wheel drive cars which destroyed a huge segment of Chrysler's sales which were police vehicles. BTW the poor gas mileage was created by the EPA's rules for engine design which reduced mpg by by about 30%. That's why those cars weren't selling so well. I had a 78 Chrysler NYB with a 440 engine that got 7 to 9 mpg. When that engine was introduced in 1966 it got about 18 mpg and produced nearly 400 horse power. By 1978 due to the EPA's hacking away at things it was down to 190 HP and 7 mpg. This was to "reduce pollution". How does burning more than twice the gas to operate the car reduce pollution? That's a mystery that only the politicians in congress are allowed to know, I guess.
