You must be a youngin'.

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!

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

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

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.

it would appear not.

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

This looks like the chippy from the movie Grand Prix.

"Smoke?"
"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:
