I'm sure as you watch these eps on this channel, there are some prizes that make you say "Only in the 80s". XD

What are some examples? I can think of some of the computers offered in this era. :D

The furniture! Omg the furniture. How did we survive the onslaught of waterbeds, [gaudy] brass, mauve, and rattan?!?!

The one that takes the cake are the $800 chairs made of PVC. Egad!

The AMC car brand.
Tappan and Gibson Appliances.
Haggar Slacks and cans of paint in SP games.
Bakers racks, big wooden rocking horses and the globe on a stand that opens up into a bar set

When the prize is a car with the passenger side facing the camera, and the model does that move where she walks around past the hood so she winds up walking backward along the passenger side, I think about how she'll have to be careful not to back into the side mirror. Only to realize that there is no mirror on the passenger side.

I may have mentioned this before, but it seemed like Dian was determined to sit on every single pool table the show offered. That is not how pool tables were meant to be used, Dian.

Not to mention Barker himself, probably...

Getting back on the topic of prizes that were a product of their time, I must say that that yellow Ford Fairmont 2-door they offered on almost every show in Season 12 is one of the most butt-ugly cars I've ever seen.
