    Too young to shave back then but I remember my dad had this shaving cream that would warm up in your hand after you dispensed it. It was not heated up in a shaving cream warmer I think it even said heats up in your hand on the can. Does anybody rember the name of it?

    It was a Gillette product called "The Hot One".

    ok thanks. I always wondered what caused it to heat up like that.
  4. There was a plutonium pinball in the can. One of the selling points was "a guaranteed closer shave" and after time, "shaving less often".

    Ah, the '70s. I miss my Pinto.

    It probably contained asbestos. Definitely asbestos.

    That makes me miss the dozen or so blinking orange traffic lights stolen from traffic barricades, Dark Side of the Moon, and awful weed in my buddy's basement.

    I wanna go back so bad.:bawl:

    Ahh, 8 out of 11 of my family members drove a Pinto and only two caught fire. One was the fault of my sister's boy friend who changed the gas filter but forgot to tighten the clamps and the other was shrouded in mystery as I think my brother just wanted a different car. I had a 71 station wagon the we turned into a van/panel wagon, and I swear a year later we drove by the big Ford Dealer and they had one like the picture below. Mine was dark blue with no stripes.
