Buying A New Car In 1970 - What Was It Like?

Just thought people might find this video interesting. This guy has a really good YouTube channel called OldCarMemories and has loads of historical videos on mainly American cars.

This is a new one and compares buying a new car in 1970 to buying a new car now. Also check out his other car videos where is has covered most popular makes and models from the past.

I'm pretty sure that guy did the voice over work for all the instructional videos that put me to sleep in high school.

Joking aside, pretty neat info.

Never would have thought that the LTD was the top selling car in 1970...
