I'd just like to go back to the days when cellphones were for emergencies and texting hadn't been invented.  Woman LOL

DITTO. The use of cell phones and the nonstop texting is beyond ANNOYING. It's so sad that so many people can't do anything without being on the phone or texting.

Is this awesome or WHAT?!  

 

My BFF talks about the 'old days'...especially cars.  

We both have the same story.

Everyone remembers how mom & dad would throw all the kids in the back of the 'whale of a car' back seat.  Dad would make a sharp right hand turn & all of us kids would slide to the left hand side....man, that was fun!  

 

Seat belts?!  What were seat belts?! 

😄


I love this car!!! Thanks for posting this picture!

 

I was watching an episode of Mad Men when Don and Betty were bring the baby home from the hospital. She was just holding the baby in her arms! I have a grandson who is about 15 months old and his car seat looks like an astronauts chair!


@Irshgrl31201

No baby seats!  Funny to think of life before that. 

I think cars have the most nostalgia for me.   

Beautiful cars are like a work of art.

The steering wheels were huge back then.

Do you remember the steering wheels being so thin?  How about them being fitted with a knob...making turning easier?   Funny.

Yes I do. My husband said he remembered that middle section and how many different kinds of those that there were. (I showed him that picture).
