Wow, you really have issues with the current generation. Jeez. Angry much?

I worked as a kid and still found time to do stupid stuff. Never drugs, but plenty of other stupid stuff (some life threatening).

But seriously, get off your high horse and go look at micro-fiche back "back in the good ole days". Bad stuff happened then, too.

I didn't realize at the time, but I know now why I loved putting model cars together when I was young.

I am just now realizing why I could never put a model together as good as the the picture on the box...

Nah....most of them model cars were hollow on the insides....nothing like the real thing.

You could get 7 or 8 gallon milk jugs in the spare tire area. Only 1/2 gallon milk jugs and quart mason jars would fit under the back seat.

The popularity of the jacked up back ends began with shine running. Once you loaded up the trunk of a car with a jacked up back end, then the car would settle down nicely, so nobody (hopefully) would suspect a thing.
