    Old geezers will enjoy this!

    Why is it easier to remember these days than it is what I ate at breakfast this morning?

    Just a bit before my time, but that was a pretty decent montage. Some of the song changes were a bit abrupt of course... lots of work though. That 'Walk like a man' clip was great!

    i remember the s&h green stamps because at the store our dad managed, they had 2 dials, one for whole dollars, the other in 10 cent increments, and they dialed your total purchase to get the right amount of stamps. other than that, i'm too young to remember any of the other stuff.....

    You know, I think about those days from time to time. And wish my grandchildren could experience them! Pity!

    Not war time Larry, I'm only 63 Girls always danced with each other Usually most of the boys were too shy to ask the girls to dance. Or were out back sneaking a cigarette or beer

    First car I ever had was a 1949 ford. It was about 15 years old, ugly, beat up, and burnt oil like crazy but I thought it was a Rolls Royce

    I remember seeing the convertible. Not sure if there was trunk room left or not.

    Pretty much all of the music in that video predates when I acquired a taste for music. I've heard it all my life, but it's never really rung my bell.

    My aunt and uncle had one of those Ford convertible hardtops. I was too young at the time to remember, but I've been told the trunk space was pretty limited with the top stowed.

    Someone who works in the same building as I do has a modern Mercedes with the convertible hard top. I know it'll at least fit a laptop in a case, because I've seen it done.
