Lynda Carter as our favorite version of Wonder Woman

In this exact moment in time, the world is blinded by fear, uncertainty, and loss. With an uncertain economy, fear of sickness and death looming, and worldwide restrictions, we are all faced with meeting our own personal challenges and fears. Bad things may be happening around us, so let's go to the past and to the happy times...let's relive some of those golden years and escape reality even if it's just for the length of this gallery.

We tend to look back on the past with rose tinted glasses. The reason the future and the present moment can feel uncomfortable at times like these is due to uncertainty...we just don't know if that outcome is going to provide us what we need to feel safe, secure, and happy.

The beautiful thing about revisiting history is it gives us the power of hindsight...we know what happens then, so it's safe and comfortable. And the memories that those moments in history provide us actually can help us shift how we feel in the present moment, which is the only thing that can shift how our future unfolds.

Lynda Carter spent the back half of the ‘70s lassoing hearts as Diana Prince, better known as Wonder Woman from the 1940s to the current day. The series got its start as a TV movie, The All-New Original Wonder Woman, which was cut into a series of one hour specials before Carter was finally set loose onto the viewers of ABC.

When asked why the series appealed to viewers, executive producer Douglas S. Cramer explained that it was Diana Prince, not Wonder Woman who made audiences swoon:

There really was the sense that this plain, ordinary woman Diana Prince could turn into someone special like Wonder Woman. This aspect, which gave hope to many who were without hope, was really at the heart of the show’s appeal.

No one looks as hot on the track as Jungle Pam, the drag racing sweetheart of the 1970s. Funny Car fans flocked to races to watch her assist “Jungle Jim” Lieberman, one of the best drag racers in the sport. She was known for her tight outfits - usually short shorts or mini-skirts paired with go-go boots and a grin that revved engines.

When Pam was on the asphalt in the ‘70s drivers were able to market for themselves, and Pam’s presences was a work of genius by Jungle Jim, burning eyes to ever race he was on and raising the profile of the Funny Car.

She wasn’t just a pretty face, Pam had the showmanship to pull off her gimmick, and with every crouch and flash of her smile she kept audiences in their seats and fled to the action.
