    I remember them well. We used to go for a ride every Sunday after church, and i can remember my mom yelling at my dad to slow down so she could read the burma shave signs. LOL

    Thanks Dayton! Although I just got to watch my older brothers doing most of those things, I remember them. And I love the song by the Statlers, isn't it? Never saw any Burma Shave signs in this area, but maybe it was the mountains, or because we didn't leave home much back then. My memories involve spending alot of time at the local petroleum station with my older brothers. Most of them either worked there or were part owners up until we moved to another part of the county. The old GRAPETTES, Nehi sodas, gas for .25, moon pies and RC colas, the old soft drink coolers and wire bottle racks, gosh I could go on and on.........pepsis with peanuts............thanks for the flashbacks

    Love and Hugs to you and Betty from TN

    I wanna know ONE thing............


    Can you still buy Dapper Dan????


    I saw it somewhere a few years back, but haven't since. Maybe it was just an 'Oh, Brother Where Art Thou?'
    special.
