Not 70, but still enjoyed the slideshow.
My folks owned a (used) Buick Special, I remember the old carhops at drive-ins & late 50's vintage TV sets, and they still make Bass Weejuns.
Also have a neighbor who owns a mint condition '58 T-Bird, which is worth a WHOLE lot more now than when it was made.

Just 65 here (but sometimes feel like I have lived 85 years). Loved the photos, and they brought back many fond memories. Thank you.

I enjoyed it also and I am 60. Two things that really hit me were: 1. How people dressed up so much and very clean looking. 2. How much thinner people were then.
DH and I went with DD, DSIL and Granddaughter to the drive-in this past summer. Really enjoyed it and was glad that granddaughter was able to experience it.

Thanks for posting.
