Cars came with bench seats and larger steering wheels and no safety belts....there was no such thing as a child safety seat.

The woody was the station wagon with wood sides!

I still miss big phone books.

Cool car, Gus! My uncle had one of those chevys.

Anyone remember standing on the differential hump while riding in the car?

I remember standing on the hump tho mostly I curled up on one side or the other with my toys and books, we took lots of road trips. Anybody else ever got to travel on the upper bed in a camper? That was a great way to see the USA.

i remember when 3 or 4 of us younger kids would ride in the back of the pick-up, and jump up and down on the bumpy roads, cause you never knew where the floor would be.... talk about 'cheap thrills' LOL (yes, ONE time a cousin fell out of the pick-up, but i think he was pushed~)
