I think most of us guys of a certain age remember our favorite auto parts store - mine was a place called "Stoney's". You would in and go to a well worn counter that was lined with various catalogs with well worn pages,usually grease/oil stained,that the counter guy would open to get the part number of what you needed.
Cases of engine oil were stacked up along with racks of hoses and belts.
There was always a certain aroma in those places.
One of my first orders when I was old enough was a pair of 1953 Chevrolet fender shirts.
