I remember all of them, except we didn't have that washing machine. Had the Stingray bicycle with the banana seat and tall sissy bar, big back tire and tiny front tire, but it had a 5
speed shifter and butterfly handlebars with dual mirrors! Also, my Dad worked at the Standard gas station wearing one of those uniforms, too.
, those steering wheel spinner knobs are making a come back! I've seen them selling on eBay, and NOT "vintage" ones, but brand NEW! And 40 pound radios? I think you must be talking about a "light" one! I remember the ones that were in a tall standing wood cabinet that weighed probably 75 pounds or more, because it was thick SOLID wood, like the one in the movie "A Christmas Story
", or it was similar to the turntable stereo cabinet in the OP, but JUST a radio!
By the time I was in high school, though, we
had a 9 foot satellite dish in the side yard for TV, too, that would get EVERYTHING, and it was displayed on a 36" rear projection TV screen, with a BetaMax video cassette deck hooked up to it, that was "top of the line"! I also had a TI-99 COMPUTER that used cartridges or cassette tapes for programs!
WOW! This sure has brought back some memories!!
"My Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke,
tires screeching, totally used up, thoroughly worn out, and loudly proclaiming...WOW! What a Ride!!"
