Carson Time Capsule... Thursday, November 13th.


In the capsule today…

We find the debut of the Chevy Vega. The Vega received praise and awards at its introduction, but subsequently became widely known for a range of problems related to its engineering, reliability, safety, propensity to rust, and engine durability.

We find a film starring Jack Nicholson in theaters. “Five Easy Pieces” was primarily filmed in British Columbia, though additional photography occurred in Portland... and at a Denny’s in Eugene!

And we find a song on the radio by Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Graham Nash wrote the sentimental tune "Our House" about his relationship living with Joni Mitchell in L.A.'s Laurel Canyon.
