Cars of the 70s in New York City

Little fact, New York City is filled with too many wannabe street photographers(P mode professionals) , I know because I was one of them, I have pretty much walked through most of the streets of Manhattan with a camera by my side, but I honed my skills this way and I think I shoot relatively better than a noob now because of. But I always thought this was a relatively new fad mainly because of the cheap cost of DSLR cameras, and probably because it made you look like a badass with a 5lb camera around your neck. But it appears I was wrong. I found this facebook page that has images from the 70s. Arguably the 70s was probably not the best of times for New York, but it is good to see cars that are considered classics these days, driven as daily drivers, with dents, mismatched wheels and all. Take a look, see how many cars you can identify, I picked out some of my favorite images. (And all of them are from before instagram took a dump on photography)
