"Gas Wars" never to be seen again in front of gas stations. In 1966 bought my first new car a 1966 Dodge Hemi 2dr sedan stripped heater and power steering delete special order for everything I didn't want. I wanted it for one reason Drag Racing I paid 25 cents a gallon for premium fuel for the beast it kept me broke all the time worked 2 jobs and drove a 1959 Rambler daily to work.
I remember a few times gas was 17.9 and oil you cranked out of a barrel into a glass 1qt bottle, that was reclaimed oil for the Rambler .15 a qt. it used almost as much oil as gas lol.

You used water from a 'CISTERN" ?... Your T.V. screen, was round?... You had 'push button automatic' in the centre of your 'EDSEL' steering wheel?...
...when the VFO had 11 Meters on it? And you had to fight the diathermy machine in the doctor's office across town to work the band?
Receivers had "magic eye" tubes instead of S-meters...

It's pretty easy remembering using water from a "CISTERN", because I still use one. I have a 5,000 gallon Cistern behind my house. The pipes from the Cistern lead to a small pump house that gives me water pressure. In the winter we keep a 75 watt light bulb running in the pump house to keep the lines from freezing. Every Tuesday morning I take two trips into town with a 450 gallon tank on a trailer, to replenish the water. It is very good water and only cost $0.01 a gallon, if you don't include the gas for the car and mileage. The water machine in town uses quarters.

It has a very nice Chrysler DeSoto sitting on the roof. See http://www.legendsofamerica.com/pict...desotos-2.html. It's not easy to see, but sitting behind the steering wheel is "Elvis". Now you know where he went when he left the building.

In my area, it seems that every pickup truck or SUV comes with one or more dogs. It's so common that I can only assume that the dog(s) must come with the vehicle. So logic tells me that, if you want to keep the truck for a long time, go for the multi-dog option. Otherwise, if the dog dies, you have to buy a new truck. I have five dogs (4 dogs as of 4/4/2013, RIP Katie), so I'm set for a few years.
