Actually, it isn't the norm for new cars now. More and more are going to no spare at all and a Tire inflator kit instead.

Unfortunately, we've never got around to doing this with our present car. I don't think we've even looked to see what the condition is of the spare that came with it, but I'm fairly sure that it is one of those miniature spares that I so much despise.

- Encyclopedias and White-out


edit:
- Learning BASIC at the DOS prompt in high school
- 5 1/4 inch single sided floppies (before you hole-punched)
I would list what I remember but there is too much stuff and it is too sad to recall what is gone forever. Take my word for it, you kids have to suffer greatly these days because the truly cool is long gone and you must settle for whatever is available or whatever manufacturers tell you you want.

So very sad.

I remember everything on your list. Hell, forget encyclopedias . . salesmen arrived with all kinds of crap. Like The Watkins guy, Avon and others. I guess Avon still calls.

Payphones, penny candy, Coke in real thick green glass bottles, men dressed u to go out; they wee not the slobs they are today. Black and white TV and records. Cigarette machines, juke boxes and it is too sad to go on.

So I'll let my friends tell you more:

The Statler Brothers - Do You Remember These - YouTube

there you go.

Parents have been rendered scared my the media and so they hide their kids these days. God forbid, they play with a real toy and they end up with a boo boo.

I remember Wammo's (SP?) line of things that were cool. I recall the Water Wennie (SP?) you hooked to your garden hose. It flew about spreading water and joy. I remember the water slide as well as the Va-Room (SP?) engine designed for cool bikes like my "Orange Crate" (SP?)

We removed the silly Water Weinne (SP?) plastics and played "Dodge the dangerous metal end to avoid a concussion" game. OK, to be fair, we often took the simple and harmless and and innocent and made it dangerous.

Like threading (with great care, mind you) the roll of red paper caps onto a needle and wrapping it with scotch tape. Add a little glue (I remember the amazing colors and dragons you could see while you were breathing the fumes) and set it on fire. KA-BOOM!

Not sure how we survived, but we did.

Kids . . . sorry you missed the cool and are so over protected by your parents. Parents? give your kids a break and let them break a leg or grow a scab. They ain't a gonna die unless there is a drive by shooting or you are diagnosed with ADD because you were exposed to gamma rays from your black and white TV or you play with Gilbert Toys U-238 Atomic Energy Lab.

Just don't put out your sister's eye with your Red Ryder BB Gun or someone will start thinking about banning guns from the local Five and Dime and Woolworths will go out of business.

We played Cowboys and Indians and I "killed" plenty of Indians. Occasionally some cowboys or the Calvary were felled by friendly fire, but we were kids and it was all in fun. And you all now how well adjusted I am, right? It is because we were kids and we actually had a childhood. One without Facebook, Twitter, video games, those GD cells, email and IMs.

I fought other kids and lived. I fought many great historical battles with those little green army men and sometimes, the Calvary used those green plastic tanks and dinosaurs to fight Indians. I do not grow up unadjusted and I have yet to kill another human. My fun old toys did not screw me up.

Not one of us were killed because we walked into the Blue Occupied Zone in the wrong part of town and were knifed because our Red Ball Keds were, well, red.

We knew how to have a good time and few of us actually died. Thanks Mom and Dad and thanks toy makers for giving us some pretty cool stuff to play with.

I will never purchase a new car. Lots of great new cars to be sure, but I am old and therefore, I want old, dag nabbit. So for me, I visit the web and my search for the next car is overwhelming. And there is always room for a spare tire or perhaps a dead body.

I recall a few good cars arrived in 1965-1970 which was the latest I think I'll go. Like the 1969 Plymouth GTX with a 440. Perhaps a few Vettes past 1970 are acceptable. I might go with something older that is cool, fast, gets 5 MPG and can crush all modern cars.

Do people still patch inner tubes these days? I am trying to find a set of solid rubber tires but oddly enough, they seem to be a discontinued item.

I am perhaps a tad older. I was born November 19, 1955. But do not ask me to subtract 1955 fro 2012 because I really hate the result.

The thing about being somewhere between growing older and old, is the time passes quicker as you pass much quicker. When you are 12, waiting to be 16 to drive, time hardly passes. Then you hit 16 and you want to drink so you want to be 21. that takes forever, too.

You hit 21 and things look bright. You put off realizing your dreams because you think you have plenty of time. Then 30 arrives and you wonder what happened. Then 40 arrives next week and after that, decades pass every year and you wonder what the heck happened to all of that time I knew I had at 16.

It hit me when I ran into an old friend with grandchildren. Grandchildren for God's sake. How did that happen?

Well, at least I have my OEM teeth and hair. I'll require very little touch-up when I am finally prepared and put on display in the coffin. I am thinking I want a 'Roaring Twenties' theme at my wake. Expensive drinks are on me, so come to the wake.

Just wait until they start calling you Sir!

Bronzed baby shoes. Do any of you remember those?

What about the pictures that might land Bob in jail? I am talking about the well known and once widely offered naked baby on a fur rug pictures. Besides naked pictures of this most glorious of children, I was on a fur rug. So PETA as well as the FBI would fight for jurisdiction.

Calculators and typewriters are also on their way out. Both mechanical wonders not even Apple's best engineers could build or perhaps operate.

I use to wear Navy jeans. As I recall, they were bells. Or slightly belled, I forget. One store in SLC sold them and everyone seemed to wear them.

And they were something like $4.00 or so per pair.

I also has plain bell bottoms and blue/white platform shoes. Please do not lose respect for me, but I swear, (I am now truly ashamed) I also occasionally wore a leisure suit. Kind of a light pink color. I was the bees knees.

I seem to recall looking like a young Mr. Furley from "Three's Company."

And the phrase "bees knees" is also gone. No, wait . . . I just brought it back. Hip, boss, rad, bitchin, gnarley, totally tubular, . . . are these still being used or am I just too bloody old? I rather like hip and boss and there was a time my car was rad and my bike was gnarley and when I got over the leisure suit, I was probably somewhat hip and in some circles, boss.

Now I am alive and that's good enough for me.

There is another thing for the list. Hipsters and poets reading poetry in a dive filled with smoke while the bad poets drone on and on. Fingers snapping approval.

My mom did the same thing. She was a secretary for many years and when I had to take type in school, she became a Catholic school Nun with a ruler.

She also freaked out when she was so much as a penny over or under when she balanced the checkbook.

Court stenographer and legal secretary. I got off easy on that machine and shorthand. My sisters, not so much!

I had a two color ledger by the time we had Cub Scout dues, kept one there ever after.

LOL . . . yup. Those days are gone. Not sure if that is good or bad. Like the legitimate hippy. I am sure I think I miss them. Hippies of today are nothing like those from 1960 or so.

I love this song:

Scott McKenzie - San Francisco - YouTube

I have always absolutely and totally loved that song. Not sure why; it might be that I remember the times (I was 12 at the time) and by God, things were great and we kids were not aware of the world's problems.


RIP, Scott.

Are those yours? If so very cool. If not, still very cool. I am amazed at how adults have adopted the toys I remember and made then uber cool and costly to be sure. Not just expansive train layouts shown in the magazines, but things like R/C airplanes. For example:

Very, very, very fast Turbine powered RC Jet - YouTube

The fun starts about 6 minutes in.

Today we move ever towards hands free technology: voice commands and motion sensing input. Before that we were introduced to touch-screen interface: a life without buttons. This came after buttons ruled the world. Everything had buttons! Before that was dials. Even "computers" used dials. My first microwave, t.v., and radio all used dials.
Before that, I guess I don't know.
Use-your-imagination is what.

Just be sure that the pads don't come in contact with the aluminum foil hat, could leave a burn mark.
