I did actually....an 82 Yamaha YZ50 was my first bike. Not like the 50s now. 5 gears and clutch, that little bike would fly! Raced it for a couple of years before moving up.

Wow, 23 out of 25.

The Studebaker brought back really neat memories as my Dad had a Silver Hawk when I was growing up - really spiffy ride that one...

Perfect score. I'm older than dirt. I feel like it sometimes too.

Older than dirt here, we used to get together two or three times a year and either kill and clean MANY chickens, or a calf, or a hog, and all the families involved would take home meat for several months. We did this with vegetables, in season, as well.

Only thing I can't remember is Blackjack chewing gum. It may have been a regional thing or maybe I just didn't like it.
