    Coming on like gang busters!
    I know this is used a lot but my bet is many even y'all older ones won't know where it came from.
    I do remember. If it was a radio show I don't know but I do remember Gang Busters on early TV. About 1950.
    The show was about catching the bad guys like the Barker Gang and Dillinger Louie "the Actor" Sutton.
    The show would begin with boots marching in step. It showed prison guards at night inside the walls.

    BYW Louie Sutton went on to write a book on his exploits. He was proud that he never hurt anyone. Unless
    robbing banks doesn't count. Louie said he wished there had been as much money robbing banks as there was in writing books.

    Got another one! Watching news, and the lady was at an antique show and happened on a portable typewriter. The people in the studio asked her to type on it. She says "I've never used one of these." This lady is late 30s early 40s!!! Next she is looking at some new wood signs. She asks the vendor, "Are these old or did you make them?" duh yeah, freshly made boards with letters stenciled on & airbrushed accents aren't antique! You can find the same at Walmart cheaper! Ya gotta love the news folks they're so special...............

    How many box tops was that?
    I used to like sending for things. Usually so many box tops and 25 cents or there abouts.
    From the radio show Tom Mix I got a glow-in-the-dark arrow head whistle and a tiny revolver
    that would always point North because the barrel was a magnet. The things sent for would go along with
    a story we had heard on the show.
    I remember I got a certificate for a square inch of land in the Yukon from Sgt.Preston and his dog King.
    "On King! On you huskies!

    Made me giggle! I remember standing by my grandpas old Rambler wondering who stole the ones off the left side. Wish I could find a few pairs now a days! The Mexican car restorers are always looking for them! They re-chrome em and put them on their low riders. I've had guys tell me they'd give me $150 if I can find them four! Guess they don't understand there's only curbs on the right, unless you're driving in Tijuana!

    Remember J C Whitney? They sold most anything for a car. Like Portawalls. Rubber white round things to make black wall tires look like whitewalls. ¿Que'What?
