Watching, as a five year old, the roof of a '59 Ford Sunliner disappear into the trunk.

If you still have your old SHWIN they are now worth over two grand. Now that's money in the bank.

Houses all had Milk Chutes, and milk came in glass bottles

Glass bottles of "Happy Pop" by the case

Mo-Jo's were 2 for a penny, 50 cents got you a whole bag of candy from the corner store

Kids could go outside and find ways to amuse themselves for hours on end (without TV or video games)

TV had dials and remote controls were only for the rich people when the first BetaMax machines came out with them.

Listening to "snoopy and the red baron" in the car 8 track player

My mom's 'new' high tech stereo system that took up a large portion of the living room and then you couldn't even put things on top of it because of the upward hinged lid to reach the record player

Green and Orange were the hot decorating colours

Manual shifting on the steering column. Can't remember the car, I want to say I think it was a Fairlane.

Nice picture of the NOG at Waterloo.

Nice El Camino too, and it sounds mean.

Sunday morning Porter Wagner shows. Gosh, how I hated my Sunday morning TV being flipped over to that.

Watching Bonanza while eating popcorn.

Mom's huffing at the outfits on Star Trek.

Running to get off the bus to catch as much of Dark Shadows as I could.
