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.

Not 70+, but I remember those times very well. Thanks for sharing.
Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.

Just 65 here (but sometimes feel like I have lived 85 years). Loved the photos, and they brought back many fond memories. Thank you.
5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

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.
