My son has declared that he should have been of the 70s era. His main christmas this year consisted of classic 70s record albums and a record player. He has the long(ish) hair, goes for the 70s classic band posters for his walls, and has decreed that he wants a VW Van. I was of that era, and I don't think I turned out so badly (as long as you don't ask any exes, that is).
I guess I'll be on the lookout for a good used VW van for him (that hasn't been used as a storage shed, that is).
