Those were good times my friend. Very good times indeed. . Gosh, I even
remember when a guy could put a generator or an alternator on a car after
work in the evening, take the old parts back to the parts store to get your
deposit back, and still not be late for supper.
Far cry from now isn't it? All the jobs mentioned above plus a lot more
means pulling the engine for minor repairs. I even like the humps in the
inside of cars where the purpose was to make room for the driveshaft and
transmission. Of all the improvements made over the years, the only ones I
can see is that engines do last longer, brake repairs are easier than where
master cylinders were located under the "floorboard" (although front
wheeled drived ones are a pain in the keester.) gosh, I even liked being
able to take loose the front u-joint, drop the driveshaft and take out the
tranny for a quick noontime trip to a transmission shop where second gear
could be replaced, picked up after work, and re-installed before dark in
the evening. Those days are gone as well as our youthful memories.
Thanks for making me remember.....
