Holy cow. I remember we had a color teevee bigger than that before then
I wonder how much my parents paid for it?

Next time you bitch about the high price of a Plasma TV, just remember in 1978 a 13 inch color TV was $419!

We got a big new color TV, one of those wood cabinet ones with the sliding doors, in the spring of '79. I remember it distinctly because I had gotten grounded for saying "sucks" and wasn't allowed to watch it for a week.

And apparently $419.95 in 1978 dollars is somewhere around $1100 in today's dollars...

This one looks more top o' the line though in that it has...da da DAAAA, a REMOTE CONTROL.
