Yes, gas was cheap in the sixties. We would drive all the way from Herndon, VA to Woodbridge, VA, (20 miles) stopping to pick up pop bottles that were worth two cents a bottle to local stores. Then spend our treasure for 20 cent gas.Those were the days before seat belts and apparently common sense since we stopped out on the side of road obvious to traffic.

I remember that as well. My dear mother would light up one cigarette after another on our coast to coast drives. When I would open the “wing” window on her 1957 Buick Roadmaster she would complain that the ciggies burned too fast that way.
BTW, I have never smoked cigarettes but I do enjoy a fine cigar from time to time.
The awful C&W music on the AM radio put me off that venue for many years after.
I don’t like new country music much these days anyway. I do enjoy Merle Haggard and Garth Brooks and wish that would do something new
Lung cancer took her away thirty years ago. I am lucky that I don’t have it as well from all of the fumes I was forced to inhale in the car or in a nightclub.
I spent nearly forty years in the music biz and after a job, my tux, yes we wore tuxes and tux shirts with studs in those ancient days of yesteryear would have to stay somewhere else in the house.
The smoke from the nightclubs we played in, would hang down from the ceiling and was awful as it descended.
