    Great pictures, thanks for sharing. Interesting how camera technology behind the wall was 40 years behind the times.

    Thank you guys for your comments. Yes - color photography was kind of rare in Czechoslovakia in 70´s. It was somewhat available, but was terribly expensive. Most of my childhood photos are in bw, only a few are color. Until mid 80´s - then color was slowly becoming a standart. Also, I rember having a bw television until 1986 -then we got a soviet TV "Selena" - lasted about 3 years until it burned out and used to cost about 5 monthly wages :D

    What kind of car is the one on the left? The badging looks like it says "Chrysler".

    Looks like it could be a Opel Commodore from the 70s. But it's hard to tell as we had the Vauxhall version here in the UK. A friend of mine has a Opel Commodore coupe and that has a similar looking front end. His needs a lot of work but its a good looking car and has an American mussel car look about it.
