    We broke all our planes too Steven! Along with many of our other toys. Many times the rebuilding and reconfigurations were a lot of fun, and good learning experiences for my brothers and I.

    Just saw an ad for some jacks. $3.00. The last set we got was free but if you bought them at the time I think they were $.25.

    Definitely one of my top 3 favorite bands (probably number one). I haven't followed them for a long time though (don't listen to a whole lot of music these days) so I don't know if they're still making music or not. The older stuff was incredible though. I always wanted to see them live but never did.

    I went thru a few tubes of this stuff as a kid. Brylcreems slogan was "A little dab will do you"

    Also used Butch wax for a "Flat Top" or sometimes called a "Crew Cut" haircut

    One of my favorites as well, didn’t go to this show as I was only 15 at the time. Saw them live a couple of times in the 90’s great live band. I believe they are due for a new release soon.

    Does anyone still use the phrase, "Give it some gas," when they mean increase the throttle? I told someone recently to give it some gas and they did not know what I meant.
