Remember When

Gasoline was $.18 per gallon and some stations used the old glass cylinder to measure it. Some cars had two horns, one for city and one for country. Windshield wipers quit working when you would speed up.Most bridges were one way(not much traffic). The rumble seat was the newest fad.During ww11 we had meatless tuesday, gasoline stamps, sugar stamps,no new cars,almost no tires,No butter unless you lived on a farm and had a cow. The oleo was white and a color package was included so you could make it look like butter..Just some of the things I remember.. I know there are many more thongh..

  • I remember Coke for a nickle with bottles that were almost unbreakable. Movies(double feature even)for 25 cents. Oh yes, and a cartoon that was actually funny. I think the Statler Brothers say it best with their song. It has the same title as your post "Remember When".

  • I remember when 10 cents was a good allowance, penny candy. candy cigarettes, Howdy Doody and the Lone Ranger. 45 RPM records, washtub wringers, 15 cents for a McDonalds Hamburger, 35 cent a gallon gasoline. And the worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties. Ahhhh, the good old days.

  • Why would you want to have grown up in our day? Most of us only made less than $2.00 per hour>

  • I remember when I borrowed my parents car for Friday night driving up and down main street, ocassionally stopping at the DQ to catch up with everyone in our little town in Texas. We would put a dollars' worth of gas in the car to last us all night and more.
