A good many of those pre-date me, but I do remember those Burma Shave signs. They provided entertainment on long road trips when I was a kid.

You can still get A&W Root Beer floats in the frozen mugs in some places. And peddle pushers came back in style - they are current now.

Thanks for the really old memories of all those things. I was kind of young when some of those were popular. I remember the older boys wearing hair with the duck tales. That hasn't come back in style.

I can remember watching Roy Rogers on T.V. too. Yep root beer is still around. Ahhh....those were the days.

When I was a teenager I worked in a A&W rootbeer stand, with papaburgers, mamaburgers, teenbuegers, babyburgers and carhops on rollerskates and miniskirts.

Yes, I remember... Does that mean I am older than dirt?
