      Yeah, sorry. I'm only going to be posting the car related stuff.

      A friend of mine found a box of old Playboys in his attic and gave me this one since he knows that I like F1 and racing in general. I found it pretty interesting so I thought I would share. I also put up some of the interesting ads. Enjoy.

      edit: I realized I forgot to add the last page of the article. I'll get that added when I get home. Sorry.

      The prices of things before roughly 1978 seem cheap even compared to 1981. Inflation was horrible during that time. 21% interest on credit cards was normal, home loans were at about 12% and unemployment was 14%. This is before they stopped counting people who simply quit looking for a job to lower the unemployment rate - on paper.

      My first car was a 1967 Sprite. I loved that car and it started my 40 plus years of brit cars ownership. I tried to locate the car years after I sold it. Found it decaying in a field. No rockers and no floors and buried to the center of the hubs.

      Sunbeam Tiger, haven't heard of those in quite some time. Growing up our neighbor had one tucked away in his garage.

      Yea inflation was crazy, remember getting 12% on short term certificate of deposits in the late 70's and my first mortgage was 12% in early 80's. Interest on bank accounts is like 0.1% these days.

      Only if you don’t shop around. I get 2.25% in my savings account. But yeah. The 70s and early 80s were brutal.

      I love the Sunbeam ad. Nowhere does it mention that it actually has a Ford motor in it.

      No wonder they axed it, they shouldn't have tried to advertise it as a Chrysler anything.
