Default Accessories from "back in the day"

Seeing as how the time capsules we drive have survived 4 or more decades, there's a good chance that they have been in the hands of individuals that lack the good taste that we know we all have
I'm lucky, my car was owned and driven by one individual that did not "accessorize" at all. All I found were some ancient "Dentine" gum wrappers under my ashtray. I know some of us were not that lucky. There were many C3s that were "dressed to impress" way back when.
I'm curious to know what kind of period correct (or incorrect) add-ons folks inherited with their cars. Did your's come with a peace sign hanging from the mirror? Fuzzy dice? Hula girl dancing on the dash?
Let's hear it!

The only thing preventing me from installing a "Winky The Cat" in my Corvette is the lack of a parcel shelf.....
Oh, and maybe the fact that every Corvette owner from here to Miami would beat me up at every stop light.

My 71 had a " Princess Phone" in the car. The amount of wiring and components was amazing.

If you saw the movie "SHAFT" same phone . and antenna .

There was also some Bridge tokens in / under the center console .

Oh, this brings back bad memories!!! I went to cruise nite a few years ago and went to a local eatery for dinner. When I returned to my car, there on the rear view mirror hung a pair of dice that looked just like these!! OH NO!!!! NOBODY fessed up to it. They came off as soon as I got into the Vette!! They are currently hanging in my garage - just something to smile at. No cats have shown up yet! LOL

Thank you Greg. I have Western Auto catalogues from the teens, but I have never seen that ad.
