    yup I knew I was young! not too much of a memory for a 26 year old, must have been the years of 17-21 that made me lose the memory!

    Uh oh. That's a short list of what I remember. I saw Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris play as rookies (and had the baseball cards too until Mom threw them away...aaarrrggghhhhh). Saw Whitey Ford pitch, Jackie Robinson play 3rd. I had one of the first issue skateboards when I was 11 (1967). Yes, dirt is younger than me.

    Well Glass oil bottles was before my tiem but half these folks here might not remember the cardboard foil faced oil cans. I have a quart of 50w Valvoline racing in my garage. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    I have a set of 40's Packard hubcaps in my garage. Darn near mint. Been stored in my grandparents basement since about 71. I remembered quite a few that were really before my time simply because the stuff was still around my grand parrents place. Last year I had to send two 50's GM Fridges to the dump that worked. Wished I could have brought them back to GA and refinished them. Still hade the aluminum ice trays with the handles in them. Big honker Chrome GM badges on them.
