    I’m just amazed that the Stones are all still alive.

    Answer to question two: mostly ash trays. Yes, cars still have ash trays, but they’re clearly vestigial things with about enough room to hold the ash from half a cigaarette… which is probably why so many people seem to flick their ashes and toss their cigarette ends out the windows. Back in the BC (Before Cupholders) era, ash trays were huge things that even a chain smoker would only have to empty about once a week… and non-smokers like me could use to hold a pretty decent stash of petty change for tolls or grabbing a newspaper from the box on the streetcorner.

    I think it would save a lot of gas if drive-thrus were banned.

    According to Ray Davies, the Kinks never had the top-notch promotion that the Beatles and Stones had.

    If I knew Jef personally, the one thing I would say to him is …dude, shut the hell up! Friends do that for friends.

    My Metz (1909) doesn’t have a fuel pump, or heater, wipers or doors.

    It won’t be much longer (in fact, it may be here already) when kids will wonder how did people drive (or at least ride) without video consoles.

    Caulfield, trust me — it takes much longer than 30 seconds to cook a hot breakfast at home. About all you could do in that time frame is spread peanut butter on an uncooked bagel and run out the door.

    The Kinks ran afoul of the American Federation of Musicians and were banned from touring the U.S.A. from 65-69. That didn’t help their cause.

    1. The Kinks were too quintessentially British for US tastes.2. The Kinks got involved in some shenanigans on their first US tour that got them banned from the country until around the time of Lola.

    The biggest things for the Beatles were they sang higher notes, so the teen girls could sing along easier..The funniest part was one of the main reasons the Beatles broke up.They couldn’t hear themselves when they performed at stadiums and such, The girls were screaming all the time..

    Anyone who thinks you can make a decent breakfast in 30 seconds has obviously never cooked or lives on boxed cereal.

    Ah the days of bench seats, ashtrays and lighters front and back and cup holders that were flimsy plastic things that you hooked into the windows… my car’s a ‘99 and the center armrest folds up after folding in the cup holders on the front of it, so it’s kinda sorta a bench seat, has ashtrays front and back, one lighter (missing years ago) and still has a separate key for the trunk.
