    Back in high school, I thought it would be cool to hang my girlfriend's bra from the rearview mirror...but she had pretty big boobs...it blocked out half the windshield:eek:;)

    I know the storyline behind "Cool Hand Luke" but Newman's version is lame.
    This is still the best version out there, originally released before CHL.

    Hahaha, bought a 65 impala 4 door, I was about 18, had a plastic Jesus on the dashboard. Got the car running, driving, decided to keep it Him on for the ride.
    Guys seemed to get it, Girls would ask if "I was religious or something". He stayed with the car when it was sold, buyer asked if there was something to it. I just told him the car and I am still here, might want to keep Him.

    All the the young guys should go out and get crying baby dolls to put at the front bumper for car shows. It was very traditional in your childhood.

    I have mixed feelings about squirrels. They come in the neighbors back yard and tease my dogs for hours. Until I chase them away.
    Front yard I have issues with them there.
    At times I think I would want a whole string of squirrel tails hanging on my belt. While other times I think if we could just sit down and drink a beer together ... they are quite the clowns.

    I always thought it was racoon tails hanging on the antenna ... Maybe @squirrel can clarify?

    There's a lot of truth in that until you have to explain why you're in the tree with a case of Bud trying to talk to the critters.

    I remember all of the above. I'm almost 75 and still going. If we saw it on a car, we tried to do the same on our bikes, with cards or balloons rubbing on the spokes. It was great to be a kid in the 50's and teenager in the 60's.

    After reading all this I guess I better go down to the shop and take the tassel off of the mirror on my Malibu.
