    Quoted from DDandB-KID:

    A lone, lone time ago... The Coors brewery would have free tours and free all you can drink beer.
    [quoted image]

    You know you are old when you remember taking driver education class in high school and you got to watch...

    Last time I was in for an exam, my Dr said I had the best looking bunghole he had seen all day..... of course, I was his first patient...

    I'm turning 60 today, am I in the club?

    Quoted from o-din:

    I was seven years old when the 60s ended, so what I remember from that decade is the first run of Hot Wheels, the golden era of Saturday morning cartoons, slot cars and electric trains, Diver Dan, the dawning of the age of Aquarius, Schwinn Stingrays, a mile long group of hippies walking down the street with signs, and riding in the back of the station wagon with no seat belts. And of course pinball machines every where.
    I'm sure I missed a few things, but it is late.

    I was there in the back of the '66 Bonneville wagon going the other way..... Still have my Aurora Thunderjet HO car collection.

    Quoted from o-din:

    The only thing I have left that I got in the 60s are a few photos and my Odd Rod stickers.

    I still have complete sets of both Odd rods & Odder odd rods, plus multiples of the rare ones... used to buy cases of these as a kid and trade & sell them.

    Anyone else put one of these on their antenna?
    [quoted image]
    Its not all that old, but it was a freebie that I remember getting at one point.

    I have one on the antenna of my 1964 Thunderbird convertible right now.

    Quoted from jibmums:

    Years ago, our local Hostess outlet store would run a set of coupons in the paper - boxed snacks $2 each, individually wrapped snacks 25¢ each, boxes of cookies etc. I would use every single coupon and come home with bags full of cupcakes and fruit pies and suzie q's and ding dongs..... it was glorious.

    I a co-worker bite into a Hostess fruit pie & bugs came out.

    Quoted from Greenandwhite:

    You look at old ticket stubs from 90’s concerts and see $25 face value.

    ... Or you look at 1980's stubs & see $15~20 face value...

    Quoted from DennisDodel:

    If you had one of these in your car.
    [quoted image]

    I had a mid-1960's Olds 98 convertible with one of those that was factory equipment.

    Quoted from icanswim70:

    Say what you want, but i'm 24 and know/remember 90% of this stuff

    Bah, you probably could not use a rotary dial phone or deal with MS-DOS

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    I live in a rural area. Even so, we have all the modern stuff like internet and electricity (in most places ).
    Even so I about fell over the other day when I went into the post office for a money order and the postmaster heaved one of these check stamping machines from under the counter to stamp the order.
    [quoted image]
    I had not seen one of those since the 80s when my parents used one at the family business!

    I have a check writing machine exactly like that in my garage if you want it.

    Quoted from rollitover:

    You left out the classic...
    "Back in my day..."
    But then I suppose you have to be REALLY old for that one!

    ... & we liked it.

    Quoted from cottonm4:

    Yeah, and they don't make cars liked they used to. Used to be if the car was a convertible and the top got torn, then is was salvage yard curtains. 50,000 miles and you needed an engine overhaul. 60,000 miles and the transmission went out. In 3 years of being on the road the paint job was gone. And you were lucky the car was not a bucket of rust.
    Yeah, they don't make them like they used to. I sure do miss buying a car with 36 monthly payments only to watch the car self-destruct after that last payment was made

    Tell me about it. It was great!!
    We had an auto parts store & a machine shop in the heyday of crappy cars. -- the good old days $$$$
