Lousy music. If someone plays Tony Orlando and Dawn or The Captain and Tennille just do me a favor and shoot me.
Yep, this is when I weened off of trends. I was solid into country rock, folk rock, southern rock, bluegrass, and anything blues. Plenty of new stuff and all the old. Disco is something I heard a lot about and would hear on other people's radios. Polyester? I went all cotton, except some outdoor gear. And cars, that's when I stopped paying attention. Before that I could tell you any year make and model of any car. We really got screwed on new cars. Everything else was great about our generation. The sucky cars didn't matter back then because we had plenty of the best cars to buy used. But look at today when you can buy a 700 hp car off the lot. "I thought fast cars were too dangerous and used too much gas!" I thought I was supposed to buy a Vega and forget about horsepower." And for those having trouble forgetting about power they offered stickers. I always had a thing for trucks, but by the mid-70s that's where my interest turned

Knock three times...

Twice on the pipes, ding ding, if the answer is no...

How about I knock you up the side o de head wit some Molly Hatchet?

Re: Pic Thread: Not Just El Caminos

Knock three times... You had to go there.

I had a girlfriend in high school that liked that disco garbage so I was forced to listen to it. It was torture.

I complained about it and she would say "Quit your whining. I don't like that crap that you listen to either and I don't complain'. Fair enough... Touché.

In all these years and arguments I've had with wives and girlfriends I don't think that I ever won one of them.

I ran into her a few years after we broke up and she looked REALLY good. I thought to myself that I really should have kept my mouth shut and listened to the lousy music.

And "Flirtin with Disaster' is one of my favorite Molly Hatchet songs. It makes me want to drive fast.

Re: Pic Thread: Not Just El Caminos

I dated girls who didn't like disco. It can take time to learn just how truly compatible we are with a woman. But knowing she liked disco was a rattlesnake shaking it's tail . What's that you say? You really like flirting with disaster? OH! You meant that Molly Hatchet song. I'm still not sure if a misunderstood or not

I don't exactly like flirtin with disaster in my life but I always seem to.

That's a great song. After reading this thread yesterday I blasted southern rock though my headphones for 2 hours.
