Back in the day, it was recommended to dig a hole In the ground to pour your used engine oil into. I actually did this many years ago, shame on me! How about a flimsy hammock for your baby, allowing the baby to swing to sleep? How about vacuuming your car with the engine exhaust? Yikes, things have changed for the better! Spread your legs? 😂

What a great post John!! Thank you for sharing! Funny and alarming all at the same time.
Some things change for the worse, and others for the better. This gave me a good chuckle. My we’ve come a long way when it comes to car safety.
I agree, a very long way which is great.
I was laughing at the fake flames product.
Some things actually do change for the better!
That Nash looks very comfortable. 😂
Those cars were tanks! Put one on the road against a car today, the Nash will win the battle every time. 😂
I wouldn’t want to sleep on those lumpy seats. 🙄
I’ve tried to sleep in cars and trucks, it’s very difficult!
I don’t sleep on anything that is moving. 😢
Like an airplane? It never works with me but you always see people sleeping the entire flight. How?? The sound of the air flowing over the fuselage is sooo loud!
If I’m going down, I am going down with my eyes wide open. 😳
Crashes are rare thank God. Your odds of landing safely are pretty good!
Some things are much better now, but you could just as easily do a post about how things have changed for the worse. (All the computer waste that gets dumped on Asian beaches, the small pebbles of styrofoam that marine animals are now ingesting, the garbage that kills them, and on and on.) I guess we never learn.
I agree, Anneli, we as a species haven’t learned much. We continue to spend billions of better ways to kill each other in never-ending wars. We continue to spend billions on space travel to a completely dead world called Mars. What about the humans? Back in the 80s, it was about save the whales. How about saving the dying humans all over the planet with those billions today? This stuff really pisses me off, my government is incredibly inept!
So is ours!
I’ve picked up on that, and that the British strongly dislike this Boris guy who’s running the show there. A worldwide problem I guess…
The guy needs a real haircut! Here’s a link…
What fun, oh, the “good ole days”! I remember the Flare-O-Flame tail pipe inserts in the old J.C. Whitney catalogues.
Did they actually spit fire out the pipe?
I never got them, but they were like streamers. No, not real flame…LOL.
I didn’t know, go ahead and laugh! 😬
