I'm proud to say that I do remenber them all. I have been around for awhile, but in spite of obstacles to overcome life has been good.
Now that I discovered cruising, it's the icing on the cake.

I,too, remember them all. My first car was a Nash-Rambler with a push-button automatic transmission and fold-down front seats. It was used and cost my dad $320. My DH recently rode in a friend's new 2008 Toyota Avalon and it had a push-button transmission...... I had to laugh!

Ok, yes I'll admit it I remember all of those!!!! How about Mothers Pride soda and sidewalk sundaes. The whistle you got when you bought a pack of Oscar Mayer wieners.
