This is AWESOME!!!! You're "Super Cool". You really got me thinking: DO you remember party-lines for phones? I am a child of the 60's. I remember picking up the old telephone to make a call and haaving to silently hang it up, be patient, and check later to see if whoever else was on it, somewhere in the town, was done talking! Wow...Gotta love those cool cars, too. T-Bird.

Being a "Child of the 50's" I reallly love this. I can so remember the cars with the big fins and all the fun of that innocent time. Love your artwork, it is amazing. So fun.

I graduated from high school in 1957, the American Graffiti era...James Dean, Elvis Presley, crinoline petticoats, sock hops after the games. Drive-in restaurants and theatres...but I don't remember 771/3 records, ours were 331/3 LP's or 45's.

The car looks like my friends 58 chevy not a T-bird.

Love those fins! Great way to tie the words and the visual. It's a real testimonial to the way things were, and how things seem right at the time. Makes you wonder what is 'normal' today that will seem outlandish in 50 years.
