Oh my lord! My eyes! I thought the American sense of style in the 70's was hideous, but these are on a whole new level. Bonus points if you spot the gratuitous nudity (and I'm not talking about the sheep...)


And who the hells shampoos their hair wearing PANTS?!?!

Yup, who needs Playboy (or the internet )

Love the kiddie pool setup at lake side!

Thanks for the laughs.

The stuff mfg's are glad too.

The old Harvest Gold range probably still works , but was trashed for "style".

SS is quickly going out as is Grey , perhaps back to White in galleys?

I hear you, but I think I'm more glad that women quit growing such thick mustaches.

See pic below the guy playing the violin. Speaking of the violinist, that guy also has a clarinet and trumpet. Makes you wonder if campgrounds had quiet times back then.

That's not a woman, that Jamie Hynaman from Mythbusters with a wig on.

Seriously though.... That guy with the violin should be the poster boy for why you don't take candy from strangers.

I never realized I was missing out on the 'swinger' lifestyle while camping.
Guess I'm going to have to change my ways!
