    I even remember seeing a Burma Shave series when on a road trip as a kid. There are places and people who keep those things alive still. Slept in a cement teepee motor lodge in Arizona only a couple of years ago.
    As a kid, I watched the Howdy Doodie show and listened to the Shadow and Amos and Andy on late night public radio too.

    I had a 53 Studebaker hardtop, with a bored and stroked Crysler hemi, 671 gm blower and Hilborn injectors.
    I didn't get passed very often. I'd just finished painting it, 20+ coats of gold metallic black, hand rubbed in between coats. Went in the army before I did the interior, and sold it.

    I'm a real old fart I remember all of them and more.

    I went to the studio to see it live! Peanut Gallery kid.

    Hopalong Cassidy rode me down at a parade.

    Any folks buffs remember Oscar Brand?

    16 of 17! No memory of Blackjack gum.

    Funny I scored so high, I'm only 50. Roughly half the age of most of you geezers.

    16 out of 17. Our small town did not offer milk delivery, however we did have milk in bottle in the lunchroom at elementary school. And what about the Edsel? Kind of like the Studebaker...short lived.

    The Edsel was short lived (1958-1960) but Studebaker started in 1852 so it was around for a bit longer.

    Ha, I don't remember Butch Wax either. I thought it was a typo for Butcher's Wax, I use that on my saws' table surfaces. What we had when I was a kid was Greasy Kid Stuff.
    I use to watch the Little Rascals too and Alfalfa just used lard to put that spike in his hair.

    I scored 16 (Blackjack Gum?) and remember most of what was mentioned in the following posts. Just don't ask me what I had for breakfast.

    For those too young to remember Blackjack Gum, it was a black licorice flavored gum. The big deal was to put the gum over your front teeth to make it look as if your teeth were missing.
