MORE TODAY THAN YESTERDAY


Here's a great song. Check out the hair and suits on these guys. This was another song that we loved and sang to at the top of our lungs while riding around in a car cruising. Gas was cheap then, about 30 cents a gallon. Ah, the good old days.

Name of the group?

SPIRAL STARECASE

When I was a freshman (in college, not high school), cigarettes were 35 cents a pack -- in machines. When they went up to 50 cents, you would have thought we were going to have another Boston Tea Party, as mad as people were.

RWP,
"another Boston Tea Party" a great line. It is strange indeed to think of the prices of things in our youth and the prices today. It still boggles my mind. Thanks for the visit.

This was one of the songs I used to cruise to. My first car was a 1963 Falcon. I got it in late summer of 1971. I loved that car. It had a 16 gallon tank and I could fill up for about $3.50. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

TT,
Thanks for the visit.
My dad bought a 1962 Falcon for $1,000 new. I remember driving it and you had to pull out the choke when you stopped at a light or stop sign. You pushed it in as you accelerated. Worry about gas? No way.

Law and Order Teacher: I had forgotten about the choke. You really had to do that. I had that car until 1979, when I finally got rid of it. I had put replaced the motor twice and the trandmission once. When I got rid of it, it had 240,000 miles on it. A GREAT LITTLE CAR!!!
