...then Coca Cola got into the act shortly after I bought my first car (a well-used '49 Studebaker). :-)

I know, I know. Two photos per post is the limit, but I thought these 3 had to go together.

Apparently, you haven't read the forum guidelines lately. In April 2010, the rules were made more liberal. The limit now is 3 photos per posting and 3 posting per day. You might want to take another look and see what else changed.

Walter is not alone...I haven't read the forum guidelines in a very long time and was under the same assumptions. Will go back and read it again! Maybe you've added a prize or something!!!

Walter,
Where are you getting these nostalgic shots? You must be travelling all over.
Liked them all.

Selvin, when traveling I often stop at roadside antique stores. Some are like museums. Others make it seem like time stood still. Fun.

Your last shot shows 32.9 cents a gallon on the pump. I can remember paying that for gas back when I use to street race.
