    We were not allowed to sit on our butts, but some of us still got fat. I played little league, rode my bike, hiked in the woods and pretty much walked everywhere we went. Maybe only had a Pepsi as a treat once a week. My parents did not give out rides when we asked. Of course we did not have video games or did texting...hell, I wasn't even allowed to use the phone until I was 15. I never even tasted a Mc Donalds burger and fries until I was 19. I was the neighborhood fat kid. What I did have was the type of family that expressed love through food. Lots of things fried or baked like bread and pies. In the 50s and 60s, nobody really knew about healthy eating. In the part of the family that farmed, my grandfather worked a team of horses to plow until he bought his first tractor after WWII. He was skinny as a rail and lived into his 90s. He ate lard sandwiches sprinkled with sugar everyday. We've all known the person who could pack it away like nobodies business and never gain an ounce. My own father who had diabetes (I found this out after he died, never did he tell anyone) ate mostly veggies and fish and the occasional beer...he died when he was 64 of congestive heart failure.

    Hey Airgitair, gret to hear from ya first off.

    Look, as a kid , I mowed lawns, trimmed brush and even did windows as young as 10. I had several tree houses too. Shoot ,as soon as school was out , I was building on one of them . By the time I was 14, I was actually helping a neighborhood mechainic to over haul Model T Fords . That car now resides in a Meusuiem in Richmond Virginia . I taught myself minor body and fender soon after I got a licence to drive . I took Metal working classes in Jounior high school. The teacher was amazed at me wanting to learn mold making techniques and welding . I never let go of those skills either . Even today with breathing problems and Arthritis , I still do some fabricationg on old cars , just like in the old days ! scrubba

    Though I am a hard core drag race guy, I have always appreicated low riders. Attended a few public shows back in the 70's. Wasnt Gypsy Rose considered the preimere low rider, or most famous anyway. I had the Low Rider article too back in what 79 or 80?

    Thanks for coming back with the source but the source is wrong. That information is for a streetcar-looking vehicle that ran on rails. The photo of the car looks like a parade vehicle of some sort or was custom-made for somebody who really liked trains. I couldn't find the real information but I'm sure that it will surface. Sure looks interesting!

    THANKS, 327!!! You said it about hits and run production! :eek: Everybody please NOTICE some things, too. No pine tar, no batting gloves, no beards, no hair statement hanging out from their caps, no earrings, and they (thank God) knew the PROPER way to wear baseball pants ;)and stirrups. They got their stats by the rulebook, didn't use PEDs, and the ball wasn't a rabbit like today's. Oh! One other thing: They were TEAM players:cool:, not prima donnas.

    I can't identify the aircraft. Foreign? Looks like Lockheed flaps? It is not a 247.
