    You must be a youngin'. :gerg

    Why back in my day, I recall gas for 25 cents a gallon. And "gas war" prices of 19 cents a gallon. And, back in the day, if you filled up with 8 gallons or more, they gave you free glassware!
    Yep, 16 ounce tumblers made of real American glass, suitable for your cold beverages! :slurp

    Now days, they confuse you with pricing that's 20 cents lower than the guy across the street...if you buy a car wash! :pissed

    Sorry, got carried away...so here's a pic because it is a pic thread!

    Just so that I could post that the gas is $.06/gal presently in Venezuala

    I think that was the first thing I removed when I bought my 305 Superhawk in 1965. Useless and uncomfortable.

    Plus, I wanted the girls arms around me, not holding on to a strap. :D

    Works for me. Maybe not in the spirit of the thread, but it ain't the first side road we've been down. Adventure is where you find it. I'd take a ride with her:deal

    This looks like the chippy from the movie Grand Prix.

    "I don't smoke"

    "Drink?"
    "I don't drink"

    "Well, what do you do?"

    Sorry, I couldn't find any cool jeeps to post and and I'll be damned if I'll post a pic of a new bike or a modern "retro themed" rendition. Readers will have to settle for this:

    And a couple more of just the motor, cause these bikes were the bomb:

    Thanks for the pics of the Crockers, and the YL with them. I never knew about Crockers until recently. They are simply beautiful!
