Okay, lame jokes aside - this isn't the best showing possible on a quiz like this. However, we can't beat you up too much for it. The 1970's were decades ago, and prices have been all over the place since. We're sure you'd be much better at other 70's trivia!

Prices have been all over the place since the 1970's (though almost entirely in an upward direction) so don't beat yourself up too much over missing a couple tougher prices on this quiz. You still had a pretty impressive showing that you should be quite proud of!

Wow! The 1970's were a long time ago, and prices have been all over the place since, so considering those factors, this score is pretty darn impressive. If you did this well on a tougher quiz, you'd probably crush it on other quizzes involving 70's trivia! Great work!
