    I remember gas for $0.23 a gallon when I was in high school and as little as $0.19 a gallon during the frequent “gas wars” back then.  I could drive all week and go to the lake or the drags on the weekend for $5.00 and have gas to make it to school on Monday!!

    I stopped at my favorite gas station in the early '50s and filled up my '39 Chevy.

    There was an intense gas war in progress and the station owner was showing his disgust.

    I paid $.09 a gallon. He pumped his tanks dry and closed the station until folks came back to their senses.

  3. Worked fine on an old MAC and Quick Time.  That long nose is what a War Bird is supposed to look like.  Enjoyed it.

     

    Took me back to the late 40s when our high school library had ID sets of all US, English, German and Japanese minatures for practice in aircraft Identification.

  4. I was glad to see the military decoration that I consider to be the most envied by those of us that don't have it.  I was offered the opportunity to earn one by volunteering for nighttime patrol leader around the IIFFV compound.  I didn't take the opportunity.  I was pleased with my decision then but wish I had done otherwise now.

     

    Glad to see the smile!

  5. There used to be a 70 mph curve on US66 at the southern entrance to Cuba, Mo.  The speed limit was strictly enforced by a very large oak tree about 3 feet from the apex of the curve. You might try to do the 70 but you were guaronteed not to make it.

  6. Riders of the Purple Sage or The Wilderness Trek.  Either would keep me in a world of fantasy for weeks, then I'd move on to Yaqui.

     

    I always saw myself wearing black hat, black chaps and crossed belts with big 44s.
