These are the ones I remember:

Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water

Candy cigarettes

45 RPM records (the little ones, right?)

Drive ins

I know that Packards and Studebakers are cars (I think), but I know they were before me, and I've never sat my patootie in one. I was born in 1975, and even my granny had a souped up Chevy hot rod lookin thing.

"Soda pop machines that dispensed bottles" - I remember drinking out of bottles, but not machines that dispensed them.

So Don, sorry, I'M JUST YOUNG!!!!!!!!

WOW! That's the drive-in I used to go to when I lived up there! It's been >30 years since we moved...I saw "Yours, Mine & Ours" and "Oliver" there...that's what I remember at least!

I scored a 12 & despite the advice to not tell my age, I am quite proud to be turning 39 next month!

I gave this quiz to some of the people I work with. One young (born 1977) woman got a 4 as a score. When I looked at her quiz I noticed she indicated she knew what a Packard was. I asked her how she knew...her response...well, it's a computer as in Hewlet Packard. We "senior folk" almost wet our pants!

um...call me old fashioned ( always been a fan of retro styles and vintage ways)...but I got 17...and I am only 25!

I suppose this is why I get extremely flattered when people liken me to Shirley MacLaine circa Oceans Eleven....*smirk*
