As a kiddo in the mid 1930's I would get these free gum size cards at the local gas station showing the Barnstorm pilots from WW1 who flew around the country in the 1920's.

They also gave away fee gifts with the purchase of gas that my dad bought.

This of course was carried on during the early 1970's in the midwest and southeast when I traveled on a vaction to the east coast.

Now days we pay for everything...no freebees.

Ya don't know what you missed out on. That song brings back a whole era for me. Drive-in shows, car-hops, corvette stingrays,ect.....oh well.

Now this is a weird one. I remember when it was common to get coins for change that were from before 1900. They were minted during Queen Victoria's reign and most of them were worn down almost smooth. Dimes Quarters, fiftucent pieces and dollars were all solid silver.
