    They sure propped them up, but at least they were real back then.

    I've grown to like the looks of a 57' caddy now that I've gotten older.

  8. Ya, us old guys can understand why you would feel that way. No tats, studs, and an ocasional bone in the nose. O. wait that will be in the next decade. Plus only a few of the girls at the time looked like they were corn fed. Very few 250lb er's walking around back then. To see what's out walking on the streets today you would have had to go to the Circus or a Carnival back in the day.
     
  9. I don't like tats and studs either. I was just asking if that look was appealing to guys in those days. To me, that look is not natural, or even up lifting as mentioned earlier. Just looks like Cone Heads to me.
     
  10. Finally!! A post that totally sums up the humor of the typical HAMBer! :p

    I can only think if the poor guys on the truck who likely died spraying this stuff. Can't happen today right? The same company who made this toxic crap (Monsanto) is now selling us genetically modified food sprayed with industrial weed killer (Round up) that is supposedly "safe" too.
     
  13. I recognize that one! 7th and Wabash, looking west (US40 and US41) late 60's

    OTOH, mosquitoes cause more deaths (~4 Million) than any other multi-cellular organism on earth. Presumably those reading this forum are not among them.

    DDT was not restricted because it cost more lives than it saved, but because of it's persistence in the environment. The uninformed tend not to recognize the benefits.

    +1. I can remember pouring DDT into a hand pump sprayer when I was a kid and then using the sprayer. And we certainly were all glad to see those mosquito trucks. It was very effective and if it were extremely hazardous to humans as implied, many of us would be dead long ago.
     
  16. This one is great and very much what should be on here!

    What is this? A class project to build a float to commemorate the battle between the Merrimack & Monitor? (And why was the photographer wearing a beekeeper's hat?)
