Quit fucking around, sonny.

Again, the little smartass down at George's Liquors tried to card me the last time I was in for tobacco.  I can understand their caution with the crackdown by LEO for selling to minors, but I'm in there almost every day, so we've been through this before once or twice. Instead of waving my grey beard at him, now I just reminence. The latest exchange:

"Gimme a can of Long Cut, Chief."
"Five Dollars and some proof of age. Sir."
"My first car had an 8 track in it."
"Thank you. See you tomorrow."

I'm willing to bet the little fucker doesn't even know what an 8 track player is.

Ha ha ha ha,, I did the oposit, they local (5 and dime,, that should age me a bit)Tom Thumb has a sign up that says we card 30 and under. I went in ordered a carton of smokes (Yea I know bad for me shut up I am a free American. The young lady rang it up I pulled out my money and I.D. She said "I don't need to see your I.D. Sir," I gave her the stink eye and said " So you, by eye think I am over 30? How dare you." and I showed her my I.D. again, she , bless her heart, said. "High school I.D. cards will not work." and gave me the Evil Grin, so I of course gave her the one eyed look of pain, then we both started laughing, she now requests my I.D. whenever i come in.
Love ya Bro, have a great day.

I get carded at Wegmans every time I buy some booze. I'm 70 and look it for sure. I asked the dude behind the counter....WHY?

He said they got nailed selling to an under 21 and the fine was way heavy. So the Store manager got really pissed and now the policy is NO EXCEPTIONS.

Embrace the suck!

My first car had an FM converter. Not a kid in this neighborhood knows what the heck that was.

I installed a reverberator and 2 rear deck speakers to the AM radio in my 1964&1/2 Mustang.

Most everyone looks like "DUH" when I say reverberator. One person asked me if it was connected by a USB cable.

BWAHAHAHAHA!

My first car had a Muntz 4-track.

An 8 track, that was priceless. My first laugh of the day, last couple of days now that I think of it.

I know what one is and I know what is an FM convertor too. I must say, I have not thought of one of those in many a year.

My third car, a 1965 Pontiac Tempest, was my favorite ride. It had a 8-track. What a great car. My wife took it when we split up.

She moved with her hippie boyfriend and my daughter to a Sisters Rising commune in Dix Falls, Montana. Didn't see the kid for several years.

She used to wear a t-shirt with the "A Women Needs A Man Like A Fish Needs A Bicycle" meme on it. After we split up she couldn't go for twenty minutes without latching on to some a-hole. On her 4th husband now; managed to land a bipolar mamma's boy all on her own. Pfft

My first car was a 65 Mustang, straight AM, but what was under the hood made up for the lack of tunes. Now I'm stuck driving a momvan.

I'm looking for a FM converter for my 65 Galaxie, also some OEM type speakers. I want to keep it as close to factory as I can.
