I wouldn't want to live back then, but it sure is interesting to look back.

Back when gas stations provided a service other than selling overpriced groceries and beef jerky.  razz

I like the pic of the two ladies from Washington fueling up with the giant bug screen catcher full of victims.

I liked the fact that the gas tax in California was .08 compared to .50 today.

 It's o.k. Derek, I got the reference as as I was a big Steve Martin fan in the 70's/80's.  laughing

We have all ranges of age in this group, so some references whiz right by all of us.  razz

 I figured at least a few of you would know... if anyone shouldn't know the reference, it's me. The movie is older than I am!

I was probably too busy drinking, racing cars and chasing women to see that movie. The 70's were a bit wild for me.
I don't know anything about it and don't really care for Martin's humor.

 I totally agree. It must be an age thing. Like they say if you rmember the 60s you really weren't there!! The seventies weren't much different.
