A friend just sent me a link to this video. It probably goes too far back for most of you but--there must be someone out there who grew up in the 50s! If so, you'll probably enjoy this--especially the music. My family never had a car until my younger brother got out of school and got one so the cars didn't have much impact on me. However, I grew up in Wilmington, Delaware,--not far from Philadelphia, the "home" of "Bandstand." We used to come home from school and watch that every day. And, of course, my brother--much more daring than I--went up to Philly and got on the show a few times. When we were younger, the "Mickey Mouse Club" was a big treat after school each day--when we weren't being chased outside to play!
Does this evoke any memories for you?
