Then it should not have been a black Camaro, it should have been a red Corvette.

Beta was replaced with VHS and cost $1,200. A VHS rewinder cost $300. And the knowledge to program the recorder....priceless!

Indiana Jones, Terminator, ROBO COP & Batman

There were no such things as cell phones; there were cordless phones.

Good point, John!!

Another couple of things I was rather surprised not to see here,

Breakfast club, the film that seemed like everyone loved except me those days!!

And Jane Fonda fitness/leotard/leg warmer craze... or should that be among "WORST" of the 80s???

Omigosh! I'd forgotten about those. We had one in the Maryland area, where I lived at the time, called the Hangar Club. That's where we "girls" went for our nights out together and where we took one of our group who was about to be married. One last fling, so to speak. Bawdy, lewd and harmless fun.

Those of us who were married always joked about our husbands reaping the benefits of our visits to the Hangar Club.

So, where did you go? There was a co-worker in my dept from Hawaii and we other co-workers went along to "visit" her family once or twice a year.
