Pics from Back in the Day

Since this has almost morphed into a post about minimum wage, here is a picture from back in the day of my first job. I worked on this ride in 1973, a year before this picture was taken, as an operator and ticket taker. The wage was $1.40/hr. Since this was considered seasonal work it was below the national minimum.
Correct end to view it from as well... :poke:

The front of the car was designed to be a Pontiac. I saw a Pontiac design studio drawing that was exactly like a 70 Superbee, except it had the Pontiac beak between the two looped bumpers. Everything else was exactly the same as a 70 Superbee. I am guessing that the Pontiac designer ended up at the Dodge design studio when the 70 Coronet was designed.

That is definitely the money shot, perfect angle, perfect lighting, perfect amount of action
