My sister and I rode in the back seat of the station wagon, without seat belts. My brother rode in the rear seat that faced backwards. No seat belt either.
When the gas station attendant filled the car with (leaded) gas, he also washed the windows and check the fluids. All ffor less than a dollar a gallon. My father did not have to get out of the car.
Soda pop, made with sugar not corn syrup, came in 25 cent bottles which the machine had an opener on because there were no twist tops. Cans of pop or beer also required an opener. I miss my child hold 7UP. It had a bight to it, it wasn't this sickening sweet stuff you get now. Oh and root beer actually had sassafras root in it, hence the name ROOT beer. Until some idiot over dozed a rat on sassafras and it got cancer. Rats over dosed on anything get cancer. Its the nature of rats. Now sassafras root is illegal. I would have to eat an entire forest to get cancer but never mind, the nanny state knows better,
We weren't over weight also because going out to a restaurant to eat was a special treat, 4 times a year, Mother's Day and us 3 kid's birthdays. That's it.
