I remember getting an out of memory error on my Vic-20 when inputting (from a written magazine) a program to roll D&D characters.

Storing that program on a cassette.

My 79 Cadillac had a FACTORY AM/FM/8-track/CB

If you remember when front turn signals were white not yellow,
When radio’s had dials and not readouts, and were AM only
If you ever installed a fader control for the new rear speaker (just one, AM did not have stereo)
If you remember Volkswagen owners waving their turn signals at each other.
If you know what a 126 (or 110) film cartridge is.
If you know what a flashcube is.
If you tested your TV tubes at the auto store
If you know what an oil spout is (or have one)

You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building. Around you is a forest. A small stream flows out of the building and down a gully.

Horrah, now what do you do?
YMBAOF if you know where this is from.

I remember Pong, the first time was at a restaurant called The Ground Round. People were six deep around it. After dinner my sister and I waited to play. The pin ball machine was dead.

YMBAOF if you bought Meet The Beatles in high fidelity and had the 45 record of Ticket To Ride and listened to them on a mono phonograph with a penny taped to the needle arm so it wouldnt skip.

YMBAOF if you ever owned a Ban Lon shirt, a double knit Leisure Suit, or a Nehru jacket.

Or maybe that makes me an old fart, guess it's relative.

Okay, straining the gray matter here but YMBAOF if you remember reparing an inner tube with a vulcanizing kit. This whas where you placed the patch over the hole with a special clamp. Then you set fire to the thing over the patch to "weld" the patch to the tube.

YMBAOF if you remember stepping on a rubber bulb to squirt washer fluid on old Mopars, when you were a girly man if you wished motorcycles had electric start, and you actually used belt powered farm equipment (buzz saws, silage blowers, etc.).
