The price of gas in 1965.  The year I graduated from high school.  Life was great!

The price of gas in remember GAS Wars where gas stations would "fight" for customers by advertising a lower price than their competitors--I saw gas as low as cents/gallon once!

Eating in the A&W parking lot, hamburgs delivered by girls on roller skates...excitement!, for kids in the 60s!

Back when lunch was less than a buck! A burger, fries, and a Coke resting on the car window of a 55 Chevy. My mom use to be a "car hop" at one of these drive in burger joints.

Remember when clerks actually carried your groceries and loaded them into your car for you?!  I do...

Remember when bag boys carried out your groceries?

Pull tabs from soft drink cans.I remember when sodas had these pull tabs. They were so sharp and dangerous!

Love this!!

Once upon a time, everyone had one of these. In basic black. It was a big deal when color was introduced. BTW, our phone company charges us a couple of dollars a month for "touch tone service" - c'mon - when WAS the last time anyone used a rotary dial?

I remember burning my legs on them as a kid, but was that going to stop me... Hell No
