At the A&W drive in
In a frosty mug!!!
I’m 48 but I do remember a lot of these things. Especially A&W the floats were badass. I remember stopping in with my grandpaw on the way to Denison Dam going fishing. I’ve still got a couple of those heavy mugs.
I Love my 18 Ram 2500HD 4x4 CC
Blue Streak Pearl off-road package
I've been married for more than 50 years. I guess I must be old enough for this gang. My Dad had a gas station and I started working there for the summer in 1958 (Arlington MA). Regular gas was $0.129 and we were working on two cents/gallon. Can you imagine telling any of these kids that people bought gas at "a buck's worth" or "two buck's worth" at a time? I had some cars early on, but I had mostly vans starting around '69, mostly Dodge (318 V8) and I worked a wholesale tire business up into the early 80s. I've done all sorts of work over the years, trying to survive. My wife and I survived and we were well prepared for life with a limited income.
Welcome to our "club". I'm glad we have our own place were we can talk about stuff that lots of "youngsters" either don't care about or don't understand. They don't seem to place much importance on the past and the life's lessons they could learn without suffering the consciences of some our bad decisions. I've all but given up on giving advise to my kids and grand kids for that very reason---let them learn at the same school of hard knocks, just like we had to. I'm done now---back to my morning coffee.
I forgot about the Old A&W Root Beer Floats .then again I forget about a lot lately :O ! I do remember having to be home when the street lights came on
My dad had a cow horn drilled out, when we heard him blow that thing it was time to head home, usually meant food time
69 van? Were you part of the free love movement? The days of the womens movement where bras were burning in the streets. Some created bon fires and others about the size of a burning candle.
Wow....some great stories guys. I don’t know what the age limit is to get in bit I am a 60 year old AARP card carrying, gun loving proud Texan. My loving wife and I have raised two successful sons that have given us three wonderful grandchildren. My recently purchased 2018 is my third Ram truck. I am an old Mopar man from way back. In the 70’s I was the proud owner of a 1969 Super Bee.
Sign me up. 1st car was a '57 chevy. 1st truck was a '78 Dodge, then I got a '94 Dodge 2500, then a '05 Big Horn, now a '19 Rebel. Wish I still had my '69 Super Bee and my '70 Cuda, both were 440 six pack cars. Can't for the life of me remember why I sold them. LoL. There is a A&W in Pigeon Forge about 7 miles from my home so I can still get a frosty mug.
