    Hey there, Wingspread. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about a possible drop-dead cut-off year and why. OT, but I have to agree: The '80s had a mighty weird feel; I've always called those years "The ME Decade." And not friendly to cars of any kind at all.

    It's notable that somebody pointed out that there is already a thread about those post-64 "up in the rear" vehicles. So, all the more reason to leave them out of this thread, right? As I said, I liked them, but we can go THERE if we want to experience that era.;)

    Bottom line, nobody wants to junk up a good thread with material that's a far cry from vintage.:eek: I guess the best rule of thumb might be: The further AFTER '64 the photo, the more judiciousness should be exercised? Just presenting ideas. Looking for discussion not an argument (that would be John Cleese!:D).
     
  15. Those "soda" cans look like old school brake fluid bottles.

    ^^^^ Yep! And I remember drinking root beer out of the brake fluid cans. Had to be about 1954, '55. I thought I was just imagining that until I saw this photo.

    Years ago, I ran one just like this in Union Station, Providence RI. The Northeast Corridor had many towers with this setup (and plenty of the old ones with big levers) until the computerized things in the 90's

    Always liked attending the dirt track races. I started going when there were still a few 55's still racing. We are talking 1969. The number 7-11 car looks like its at the long defunct Corona Speedway in Corona Cal.
