    Hell in 84 I had a 71 454 Chevelle SS with a blower and now they run rice burner cars now they think are fast. The age group that does not know NOS is a brand not a name.

    Thrill Seeker...I agree with you on Eminem. What cd did I listen to in the shower this morning? Meat Loaf...Bat Out Of Hell. Not all of the 80's sucked....

    I personally had a blast in the 80's.

    I like a lot of music from the 80's. What about the Beastie Boys, Van Halen, Motley Crue, or Hank Williams Jr???

    What about Miami Vice?

    I drove a bad ass 69 Z-28 with a 383 stroker motor and 4-speed.

    The 80's were really the last of the good hell raising years in my opinion. The cops and water cops were cool and didn't harrass people. If you were caught drinking, most of the time, you just had to poor it out. Most of the cars were a little weak but the boats were cool.

    Hell, I went to the mall last week and had push 3 punks in baggy pants with hats on backward out of the way just to get in the door. For some reason they didn't understand it was a doorway and I wasn't walking around the bldg to another door. They don't have any respect for anything today.

    Every generation has its' faults, but lack of respect for others is inexcusable in my opinion...

    I loved the 80's, and a lot of the music.
    But for the record, Meatloaf does indeed suck. Not only that, but bat out of hell came out in '77.

    I hate to tell you this but Bat Out of Hell is not an 80's album.
    It was released in 1977.
    Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad and Paradise By The Dashboard Light are my favorites.

    Not all of the 80's music sucked. It sure wasn't like the 60's and 70's but it was decent enough to listen to.

    As for punishment, Dad only hit me once. He was more into verbal brow beating. It was Mom that handed out the corporal punishment.
    My daughter (now 22) received her share of taned hides while growing up. She turned out just fine. And that seems to be part of the problem today. Parents don't punish their kids like ours did. Then they wonder why the parents don't get any respect and the kids are out of control.
    I treated all my daughters friends like they were my own kids. No, it didn't hit them, but they would get a stern talking to if I didn't like or agree with what they were doing.
    And you know what? They respected me for it.

    Grow up. You never go around making statements like that. It's absolutely wrong.
    You can use that talk around your friends, if you have any, but not online.
    If you're bored, take up a hobby.
