I know exactly what it is...my point was that a guy not much younger than me not only had no clue what my dad was talking about, but had never seen 'Dumbo'! I mean, WTF? Who hasn't seen Dumbo? Was the kid raised on some weird cult compound or something?

I remember esso gas. They became Exxon.
Not up here, Esso is still a brand in Canada, run by Imperial Oil, a company that Exxon holds about a 70% stake in.

I have no clue. That peddle above it might be the emergency break. Yeah, the clutch goes there on some cars but in the older cars the e break was there, too. You stepped on it to engage it and there was a little handle below the dash to disengage it. My first car was made in 1978, my second was made in 1980 something, I think but it was probably older. One of those long Granadas. It was a boat. Anywho, that's how it was set up on those cars.

the one thing that should come back is the polaroid camera....you could take a picture and have it instantly come out as a hand held photograph...no connections needed, no software needed, no printers needed, no other device. simple and elegant.
