Yep. Recognized the '55 Ford- my grandfather had one that was solid red. I'm sad to think my grandkids will look back at today and think these were the good ol' days. If these are the good ol' days, what will the next 40 years bring them?

Yup, on balance it was a great time. Europe and Japan were down and out after the war, man, we were turning out the goods. Not at all like today and the future that looks to be. I wish my grandkids could see what that time was like, so they could know what they may be in for by comparing where we're headed with what used to be. But standards and expectations change over time, and to them it all seems fine. I'm glad for all the sawdust, its a balm for all of us who had the great good fortune to be kids during that simpler time.

During college, I had a 55 Ford 500 I bought from a neighbor for 100 bucks. Bench seats, a rolling bedroom for a college guy. I managed to get by on a few hundred bucks a month, pay tuition and books and child support. Except for the fear of the draft and Vietnam, those years were sweet indeed.

A lot of good old memories in there, including my 55 Ford as well. Regretted not rebuilding.
