Didn't the Comets get grounded?

Something about them falling out of the sky or something...

Yeah well I got my mouth soaped with Lifebouy soap for swearing ! I also owned a Mao styled dress. Very style conscious in those days. All the sock hops where the girls danced with other girls cus the boys were too cool (shy). We did the Popeye, Mashed Potatoes, Stroll, etc. dances I mean.
Going to reply to my own post. I need to make a change it wasn't a Mao styled dress it was a Nehru with a stand up type collar. Gotta get things right. Pointed padded bra's that some boy would come along and make a dent in it.

Actually it was metal fatigue around the windows that caused them to blow out when the cabin was pressurized at altitude... but they were still really cool and streamlined!

Manual shifting on the steering column. Can't remember the car, I want to say I think it was a Fairlane. In any case, I did not get to drive it. My older sister rear-ended the car ahead of her when she was babbling to a friend.

Hay bales, not round bales. Cream separator (Yes, I was raised on a farm.), hand milking with milk stools.

GI Joe.

And I have one of the first 50 Erytl toy tractors.

When I was in Kindergarten, I remember getting a 1/2 pint at 10:00 each day, and paying $.02 for it.

How about the old automobile air conditioner .... It hung on the window and Dad would fill it with water. As we drove, Mom would pull the cord.. we were wet and cooled off ....

Do you remember the roller skating rinks with the organist playing as we skated?

Old wood school desks with ink wells.

It's not a thing but an experience.
I remember when I was very little and it was dark out laying on the package tray in the back window of my fathers auto and watching the stars until I fell asleep.
I also remember riding in the back of my dads pick up and him telling me he would kill me if I got up before we stopped.
It's a wonder we all grew up since we were doing such dangerous things.
If we let our kids do such stuff today we would be in jail.

Under-dash add-on air conditioning.

Cloth child car seats with leg holes and toy steering wheels that had arms that hooked over the seat back.
