    Ah, the good old days. I remember seeing these ads back in the 70s. What says "stoner" louder than a pair of headphone sea shells? I could spend hours in a smoky haze with a pair of these, skipping class, munching on junk food, and listening to "the ocean." :D

    Have any other humorous retro accessories?

    For "fashion accessory", I'd have to pick that 'stache.

    I have a Magnavox Console Stereo that still works. I got it a few years ago, and did a little upkeep repairs. It it wonderful, and I cannot say that I've ever heard better sound than from this.

    I do miss old car radios with the tone control knob. It was a quick way to adjust for talk/music without going into a menu.

    I'm surprised no one said the Apple II :eek:

    Released in the 70s, the Apple II Plus shown here was released in 79.

    This was my go to technology of the 70s and into the 80s :D

    I had so many games back in the day, it was awesome. I still have a soft spot for 8bit graphics and sounds :D

    I can recall thinking this was amazing back in the day. Just played pong, but you could do it on a big TV screen in the lounge. At the time I guess our big TV was 21", had wood venier and weighed a ton!
