    Cruzin' in a 1962 Nash Rambler? You're lucky you didn't end up with some sort of "complex".

    Of course there were some pretty cool Ramblers... http://www.hotrodders.com/gallery/data/500/medium/7121craig_n_courtney_prom_019....

    Good read Betsey

  • In those days, if my rememberer is working, girls drug main st. to look for their friends, and to show the world they could drive.

    Guy's, on the other hand, drove to show off the wheels, and to impress the girls.

    Two worlds of thought, one street to express thought on.

    Looking back, I often wonder why I wanted to grow up, graduate, and move away. Dumb, I guess. Ha.

  • Thanks for the link for the photo. My Rambler was not nearly as fancy as that one. LOL.

    Your response made me laugh too. I think I would have had more of a "complex" if I hadn't had a car at all. While it wasn't fancy, it beat walking.

  • We used to "Cruise the 'Fax" --Colfax Avenue in Denver. Back in the 70's with the price of gas it was pretty cheap entertainment!

  • In Omaha, it was cruisin' Dodge for entertainment. Then shortly after I graduated from high school, they passed a law that if the police caught you passing a point more than four times in an hour, you could be ticketed. And there was a city-wide curfew for those under 18. I guess my generation ruined the fun for the next generation. :)
