80s CELLULAR PHONES MAKE A GREAT JOKEIf you wanted some hi-tech gadgets the place to hit up was Radioshack. I haven't been to one of those in years...I wonder why?
I'm not sure how cool it was to have a cellular phone, but, add a nice mullet, some cool 'shades', a gold watch...and you're cookin' with gas!
I always picture slimey stock brokers as the only people in the 80s who had cell phones.
|My idea of an 80s stock broker|
|80s phones for 80 year olds|
|42 year payment plan of only $18.99 a month|
|80s phone had a case that would withstand a nuclear explosion|
|Hulk could lift the fax machine, but, not many others!|
I do remember using a car phone. It was probably in the really late 80s...maybe even December of 1989...we had a family friend, a 'rich' lady who helped shuffle kids from the church group around in her big Lincoln...and she had a car phone. She would let us use it to call our parents and tell them we were on our way home.
|Nothing says 80s like a car phone being used by Miami Vice|
|I believe Tom Selleck was a big fan of telephone banking|
