Re: Favorite decade?
I was born in 1972, so for me, the late-80s / early-90's (to about 1995) were my "best times".
Muscle cars were still affordable, and the "cruising" car culture was very much still happening. On any given summer night, you could visit a local hang-out and find like-minded people with Chevelles, Novas, Camaros, etc. The cars were still driven back then, and not just for car shows and organized cruise-ins,
Rock music still ruled the radio, with a a lot of great thrash metal, "hair bands", "alternative", etc. being released almost every week. Live music scene was good too, with lots of rock bands in the bars, and affordable concert tickets when the big tours came through.
~$1 / gallon gas, etc, etc, etc.
Seems like that all started to change in the later half of the 1990s.
