More what, exactly, besides sheet metal and curb weight?

8-track AM/FM stereos?

I bought my first home then for 36k; now with the current market, it's 225k. My salary is 4 times as much now. So you are right, you had far more purchasing power then on cars and homes etc. Also you took 3 year car loans then. You buy today over 5 or 6 years with tons of miles, or you trade and never own. Pretty sad.
