I remember a lot of that stuff. I had a couple of '55 Chevies, a '58, a '59, a couple of '62's and a slew of Corvairs. Good times......and I'm only 56 years old!

I remember when the ABC affiliate went on the air in Grand Rapids Mi. (WZZM TV 13) Until then we had NBC and CBS, Who'd a thought we would have three channels to choose from.....

I remember when getting a color TV for the first time . what a big deal it was. The tech would come to your house after buying the TV and use a scope to adjustment of colors and the prices compared to today super HD TV's.

I can remember buying Lucky Strikes out of a vending machine. They were less than a quarter a pack, but you had to put in a quarter, so there were pennies attached to the pack for change...

ahhh...I am a non smoker but I remember when I was in the US Navy you could buy what they called "Sea Stores" (when the ship passed outside the 3 mile limit) and that referred to a carton of cigarettes ($1.00/carton). I dont remember what the limit on the number of cartons was but I do remember buying my allotment for buddies that smoked.. I do also remember you could get 5 fifths of liquor for about $10, which you picked up as you returned to the US and left the ship.

That was great! Remember about 90% of them. Viewing that was like taking a road trip through time.

I was 8 years old when we got a color tv - my mom won it on a radio game show show. I can't remember the question now, but I remember they played a song and asked for folks to call and identify the singer. People kept calling in and getting it wrong and my mom sat there listening and complaining how stupid all the other callers were. My dad finally told her, since she knew the answer why not call, he'd pay the bill (it was long distance). Seems like I remember the answer was "Sons of the Pioneers with Ernest Tubb". She called and the next day we were at the radio station to pick up a huge wooden cabinet with a glass front on it. It was amazing - color - everyone sat for hours staring at the thing just mesmerized by the fact that it was in technecolor (they were not called color tvs back than, they were called "living technecolor" tvs.

We had a B/W TV longer than most, but I remember going to a cousin's home to watch Bonanza in color on Sunday nights. Stopped at a donut shop on the way so we had goodies to eat too. Eventually dad splurged for a color TV, probably around 1965.

My turn, I remember all of it. And we only remember the good parts of growing up.. loved the "Burma Shave " signs as we traveled. I was 5 when we got our first TV. Black & white and three channels, in KC Mo. We watched the test pattern on Saturday morning before the cartoons came on.
