Our second road trip is in a 1970 Dodge Challenger. Its driver is a delivery man from Denver with nothing to lose. Can you name it without seeing any actors?

Virginia Slims is airing the last legal ad for cigarettes on TV tonight. It's the end of an era. Sure their products destroy your health, but you gotta respect their marketing machine! Even Fred and Wilma smoked! To commemorate the end of smoking ads on TV, who can tell me which cigarette(s) this ad might be for:



Come to where the flavor is, where particular people congregate. Our cigarettes are made by tobacco men, not medicine men, so they taste good like a cigarette should! In fact, our cigarettes are so alive with pleasure it's as if they are crying out, "Taste me, taste me, c'mon and taste me!" You'd walk a mile for one of these, even if it is just a silly millimeter longer, and you'd rather fight than switch. That's right, you've come a long way, baby. You got taste, and this cigarette is pure gold.

Welcome to 1971



Stay tuned as the Trivia Hound takes you through 1971, the year cigarette ads disappeared from TV and America gave teenages the vote! We didn't exactly stay on a daily schedule in 1970; my new year's resolution is to do better in 1971.

Born this year: Shawn Wayans, Rachel Weisz, Ewan McGregor, Shannen Doherty, Mark Whalberg, Carla Gugino, Luke Wilson, Wynona Ryder, and Jared Leto!

We're reaching the end of 1970! What can you say about a 25 year old girl who died? That she was nominated for an Oscar, won a Golden Globe, and saved Paramount from bankruptcy?
