This video is great if you grew up in the 50′s and if you didn’t, it’s still good. Turn up your speakers.

    Reminds me of cruising Van Nuys Blvd Friday nights. Well except for that Beach Boys crap. The rest are classics.
    And yes, the drive in movies were the greatest gift to teenagers. Oh the memories!

    3-in-the-tree shift.
    1958 Corvette.
    Drive in movies.
    Ford Fairlane Skyliner.

    Every year in Santa Rosa they hold Peggy Sue’s Cruise. The cars are shown in a static display at a local park and then on Saturday evening at 6pm, they shut down 4th and 5th Streets between B and E Streets and the cars just cruise around, taking laps. The sound from the V8s is music to my ears. My favorite was a 1972 Plymouth Road Runner, Tor-Red paint, with a personalized license plate reading ACME TNT.

    @Unruly Refugee — Crusin’ 4th Street in San Rafael, CA on Friday and Saturday nights in a 1971 Plymouth Satellite Sebring. 1976 to 1980. I remember when KCBS FM went live on a Friday night. Every other song was by Elvis and then the Beatles. I still think I had the best mix tapes on cassette.

    I’ll swear that every girl we met or went to parties with or would hang out with, was gorgeous. I just remember them all being hot. (Or in the vernacular of the times — foxy!) The friends were terrific and the times were great. I really do miss them all.

    We always used to say IN the tree. And I know it was not in a Vette. You just don’t see those manual shifters any more.

    Three in the tree is better than one in the bush. I think.

    Stranded, The Tree is the steering Column, Ya couldn’t shift it if it was inside the column. 100% street racer though my corrupt child hood. Nobody wanted a Three on The Tree. Spent most that time Friday and Saturday night picking up races on First Street San Jose California. Seen some crazy shit down their. Damn good times. Had a 340 mopar turning sub 12′s, no laughing gas.

    Unruly, Ya gotta remember the time released DHEA bro. They go together. And never trust the medical profession for “Normal Testosterone Levels if your are over 40. They don’t get it.

    Bad Brad, I don’t trust doctors for anything. They spend about two hours on supplements in med school.
    I’ll make a note of the time release and order some of that too. Thanks!

    Yup. More girls dancing with each other than with guys. The soundtrack sounds like one of my iPods, though it probably came from American Graffiti (nothing wrong with that.) (My other iPod contains the 50′s counter-culture: Cal Smith, Carl Smith, Del Reeves, Ernest Tubb, Faron Young, Charley Pride, et al.)

    Whoa! … Geezers with earrings? Isley Bros.? Easy Rider? I’m getting moebius-time-warped. Arrrgh! Start over.

    Winston tastes good… like a cigarette should. L.S.M.F.T. I’d walk a mile for a Camel.

    Gas wars. The Five and Dime. Closed on Sunday.

    S&H, Top Value, Regal and Plaid stamps. US Savings stamps. 3¢ postage stamps.

    J.D.s were all white. A “black cow” was not a racial slur. TWO water fountains, THREE restrooms.

    Ed Sullivan, Jack Paar, Jackie Gleason (“…and awaaaaaay we go!) Saturday morning cartoons. Sky King. Death Valley Days (later with Ronald Reagan.)
    The World Series IN LIVING COLOR on the new set with the round picture tube at the TV store.

    C I N E M A S C O P E Batman serial.

    Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke, peanuts in your Coke.

    Sugar Smacks, Sugar Pops, Sugar Frosted Flakes.

    What will today’s young people have to look back on?

    Memories from when we lived in a free society?

    All us boys had it for Annette Funicello, a legend behind her sweater. (Poor thing; hope she’s doing okay. I know someone with MS; no picnic.)

    Boobie, I actually had a pot holder that I picked up at a yard sale about 28 years ago that had a picture of “The Singing Sheriff” Faron Young printed on it. He may have handed them out when he was running for sheriff.
    Ironically, he shot himself in ’96 and somebody spread his ashes at the Johnny Cash residence while they were away.

    @Bad Brad — Yes, I know that “the tree” is the steering column. We used to say “3 in the tree” because it rolled off the tongue better than “3 on the tree.” My father had a ’67 Chevy pickup with a straight 6 and a 3 speed manual transmission. I learned to drive in that truck.

    Thank you. I was born in 1953,I like 50′s music more than music from the 60′s. In fact I have 50′s on 5 on XM right now. That was a great version of At The Hop, I still crank that one up as loud as I can get it at times and the same thing for Chuck Barry. And I still know all the words to the Davy Crockett theme song. I must be getting old but I wouldn’t trade it to have been born later like my children. Thanks once again.

    Great tips. Especially on the costs of living in a warmer country with a lower cost of living. That’s much easier to do than people realize, unless they want to continually travel back to their home cities.
