I do, but once Westfarms Mall opened, who went downtown? The only reason I went downtown was to watch the Whalers and Gordie Howe, and sneak in underage to the bars like PJ's and The Russian Lady.
LOL bought my first future ex-wife's engagement ring there.
See Savit and he'll have it, miss one payment and he'll nab it..

This is crazy! I have passed The Cadillac Ranch so many times heading west on I-40 just outside of Amarillo, but here is the beginning.
Her name is Rita. She is lovely.
Previous to when they lived in the Four Corners region the very early ancestors of the Anasazi traveled up the Hondo River in mid/eastern New Mexico. Our recently sold property has many sites where they once lived. I have explored and dug at these sites for years. The indians dug pits into the hills for dwellings which they covered. I have a large amount of broken pottery from the site and although I am not telling you this, we have three fully intact pieces of pottery. That is all I will say other than the fact that we found them all on the property. I can show you a rock on a small hill where they sat and made arrow heads. There are hundreds of aborted attempts at making useable arrow heads and the ground is covered with chips of flint from their work. There are also two massive rocks the size of houses with a fissure between them. You can tell that people have used this fissure for shelter and for camping for many thousands of years. It is also interesting that the property is about 10 miles from where the Roswell "space craft" supposedly crashed. That is another story.
^Those GTOs are a little too new for this thread....I know....picky, picky, picky....
Not a safety feature in sight. Seat belts? Nah... Metal interior trim galore to smash into in an accident? Yes, we have that covered! How did we all survive after riding around in those cars? I will say that when my mom plowed into the back of a stopped pickup truck at 40 miles per hour in our early '50s Buick we survived. I remember having a intimate encounter with the metal dashboard and ending up in the floorboard. BTW... I think about this when I pass the spot where it happened 56 plus years ago.
HO! Wait! One of those could very well be my '68 GTO! Mine looked EXACTLY like either of those. I bought it used in '71 in Dallas, Texas and that pic was definitely shot in Texas. That isn't the house I lived in, but everything looks strangely familiar. Then again, I didn't know anyone who had a twin to my Goat.
Good morning, this is Bob Steele on WTIC 1080 AM, Hartford, Connecticut, deet-deet-deet-deeeee, it's eight o'clock in the morning! My dad would not let me listen to WHCN or WCCC in the morning....
Not even WDRC.
Anyone from New England has seen bumper stickers proclaiming, "This Car Climbed Mt. Washington". Mainers will remember Marty Engstrom on top of Mt. Washington, WMTW doing the weather, that guy was a hoot. Naow four thuh weathahhh.....
Did you know Mike Cirillo, Forest Garage...almost next to the Cinerama?
My dad would listen to Bob Steele, and I never could figure out why....as I sit here now listening to Rush Limbaugh. LOL
It was kitty corner across the street wasn't it? I tried to see if I could buy a 1965 Lincoln in his lot back in like '82 or so. I'm trying to remember if Sal's Grinder Shop was on that street or on Whitney. BTW, me and my buddy kept Whitney Pizza afloat, those were days.

My first knowledge of Child Restraint System, was a stiff right arm from the driver. Worked pretty good too.

A gorgeous front end.
Heck, when I was in college in the late 70's, I listened to Bob Steele, "Robert L. Steele. The 'L' is for 'Elderberry' ".
Larry, Moe and Shep could never figure out why their lunchtime races always ended in a three-way tie...
