Heck no, the 4 speed was $188, I think the 409/425 was about $500. Got the 3 on the tree immediately changed it to Hurst shifter on the floor. It just killed the Mopar 383/330's and Ford 390/300's. Happy Days, street race now you go to jail.

Was at a store today and saw 'Luden's honey and licorice cough drops'. In the same packaging from the 50s. Had to buy them. Looked it up on line and found one package of them on e-bay. Must be a throw back thing because these are brand new.

I liked them and the Smith Brothers also. Bet a lot of you liked them too.

Having an 8 transistor radio was the hot ticket.

Building an AM radio with NO transistors, just a crystal.

My first car was a 55 Buick my girlfriend's dad gave me. I sold it for $250, and bought a 56 Chevy for $350. The 56 was pretty special, but a few years later I bought a 63 Stingray(in 1968) for $1700- now that was the ticket. In those years South Florida was paradise, even the coast was not crowded.

In those years, a 409 was a truck motor-it took a lot of money to make it run fast. The 327 could be 250, 300, or 350 Horsepower-the 327/350 Horse was pretty special because it had more horses than cubic inches(which was really hard to do at that time). The Small Block Chevy was the Road King in those years-and-a guy could do upgrades or repairs in his driveway

You remember your first sales job was selling CLOVERINE SALVE. I did this as a kid and got enough points to get an ESTWING AXE.

That was a time when you really valued and took care of anything you had. I still have that axe and as a matter of fact, I keep it in the motor home.

I grew up only about 40 miles from Tyrone Pa where the company was located.

Kids! Get rich selling Cloverline Salve! - Appalachian History

This site is spelling it wrong--It's Cloverine and you can still buy it.

Anybody else remember doing that
