The cost of things goes up and up. That's just a fact of life. But how much did stuff cost four decades ago?

We looked up some iconic consumer goods from 1977. We're sticking with the essentials of the era — gas, denim, lava lamps, musk. See if you can guess the sticker price on these items. We also looked up the modern equivalent with an inflation calculator. The results might surprise you!

Good luck!
  1. We'll start with this Farrah Fawcett bean bag chair. It came in three sizes, but you gotta get the King Size, because you only live once. How much was it?
