One last little trip to my basement archives, this time print ads from this 1971 edition of Life:
Note the cover photo of Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali was taken by Frank Sinatra.
MotorTrend magazine named the Chevy Vega the Car of the Year. I bet they’d like a do-over.
Speaking of Chevy, they had 45 models in 1972, including about seven station wagons.
Early convenience food: Snackwiches, straight from your freezer to the toaster!
Some things never change … The Amazing Space Age Slenderizer: “GUARANTEED TO REDUCE YOUR WAIST, ABDOMEN, HIPS AND THIGHS A TOTAL OF FROM 6 TO 9 INCHES IN JUST 3 DAYS OR YOUR MONEY IS REFUNDED” I wonder what PETA has to say about that rug … or maybe the tiger just stayed in his TRIM-JEANS too long.
I’m going to see if I can still order one.

Thanks for reminding me about the “good times” of the early 70s. My buddy had a very cool Vega while I was stuck with a Rambler American.
Good times indeed, Bill. My friend at a Vega. It died in the Tucson desert and we had to fly home. Uncool, all the way around!
