You will know your old when you think you remembered everything because you got your glasses on and then realize you started your truck in your Skivies.

 

You will know your old when you start reading the map upside down because your headed south.

 

You will know your getting close when you bring the bolts to your truck and forget the wrench, but when you went back for the wrench you now left the bolts where the wrench was.

I like going after the wrench or the bolts, getting to the shop and standing there trying to remember why I went to the shop in the first place.

Mine was a 1941 Chevy pickup. Paid $25. Owner didn’t know if it would run, it did. I was 13 years old. Drove it around the farm for a couple years then sold to my brother. At the same time I bought a 51 pickup for $50. Owner said it would run and it did but coolant ran out the side of the block. My son has it now.

IBMobile first car was a 1939 DeSoto he peddled down the sidewalk when he was three feet tall. He was already trying to pic up chicks along the sidewalk for a date in that car. :burnout:

About 35 cents a gallon. Everything was a lot cheaper then, including wages. This also right before the arabs started pulling chains at the pump. 

 

This was full service gas too. Get a dollars worth and you were set for the night

I had a 64 Chev Malibu after the 57 Chev. Worked after school at a golf course for $1.50 an hour. my car payment was 36 bucks a month and could fill it up usually for around $4.50 at just above the empty mark. McDonalds was next to the gas station there and a Big Mac was 50 cents.

 

Anybody got a way stop laughing about IBMobiles post? I think I gotta go see the Doc.

I worked at a full service Texaco station. Don’t remember how much gas was or how much I made. My first vehicle that was street legal was a 64 el Camino. 283, 4 speed and posi. Engine was worn out but other than that it was pretty sweet. Sold that to my brother too.

Mine was a 1962 Chevy stepside, I towed two of them home to make 1.  along with that came my first real job at 16. Worked at a true full service gas station with two bays, doing tires and lube jobs and AG tire repair. Conveniently right across the street from the high school, a couple hours a day after school and a full day on Saturday, I think minimum wage was around 2.75 an hour, I remember being on my parents insurance  for like 15 .00 a month.

For some reason I don’t think that’s @IBMobile car,
