Quoted from poppapin:
Yupp, I think 1974? Waiting in long lines for gas. In Pa. you went by your inspection sticker on your windshield. Odd number got gas one day, even the other day. Fun times!!
In CA it was by the last number on your license plate. Also, the freeways were locked at 55 mph max and it was enforced.
Today 55 feels like a baby crawling. I was out yesterday and cruising at a steady 80 and cars were blowing by right by me like I was standing still.
