No seatbelts and big back seats to sleep in. And back windows to lay in at the drive in :) #childhood #memories
No seatbelts and giant backseats for sleeping. Sometimes we sat on the floor or laid on the back window ledge for a change.
No seatbelts and big back seats to sleep in. Also the back window ledge was a great place to sleep at the drive in movie.
No seatbelts and giant backseats for sleeping - I remember that our backseats were so big that on road trips I layed on the floor in the back with my pillow and my brother and sisters sat on the bench seat. Great memories.
No seat belts and big back seats (or floor) to sleep on. Lots of this on road trips as a kick...ah yes, takes me back.
Dave Brock; No seat belts and big back seats to sleep in.When my mom cranked up the car, we literally were all over the place... sleeping on the warm floorboard, stretched out above the back seat under the window glass, or perhaps drooped backwards over the seat. We were totally free and somehow survived it all.
OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER: Not having to wear seatbelts and big back seats to sleep in.
sleep in the big backseats of cars on road trips because we didn't do seat belts!

Sissy Bar, Childhood Memories, Chopper Bike, Banana Seat Bike
Spent some hard earned berry picking money to buy a white, girl's 3 speed bike with a banana seat. Mine had a short sissy bar but I LOVED that bike. One of my favorite childhood memories.
Banana seat bikes! my daughter had the 1976 bicentennial banana bike in red, white and blue. her grandfather bought it for her 5th birthday!
Similar to my second bike growing up, ecept mine had a white banana seat .Definitely a hand me down though, as I grew up in the 80/90`s and not in the 60/70`s when these were in haha
My first bike. Pretty sure it was this exact model. Definitely a hand me down though, as I grew up in the 80/90`s and not in the 60/70`s when these were in haha
Ape hangers, banana seat, sissy bar, gear shift and hand brakes..... what this bike was to a 70's kid is probably the equivalent of what a 4-wheeler is for kids today.
the coveted banana seat bike! with a sissy bar. We called this bike a "stingray" I had one & rode it all over town.
This was the bike everyone had to have in the 70's.. Stingray bike with banana seat.

70s - 80s: Growing up in the 70s you always had to wash your feet before you came in, as it was safe to play barefoot outside! And if not, then you got the orange badge of courage for a cut! Miss the feel of cool grass on my feet.

Remember This, High School, Childhood Memories, Old School, Gym Class, Elementary Schools
Brings me back to my elementary school days with Mr. Schloemer, my gym teacher ohh yeah who btw is my Uncle Pat, but we had to climb ropes. I rocked it every time. I was a show off haha.
Gym class rope climb, I remember this. I don't think schools do this anymore. I think I may go climb a tree.
Gym class rope climb... remember this? I don't know which I liked less-- the rope climb or the uniforms we wore.
I avoided having to do the rope climb in high school PE - when/where I went to school this was considered a 'boy's only' feat to have to accomplish! Good thing - I am sure I would never have been able to get up very high! Did you have to do rope climb?
I remember doing this in gym class! We use to have races. Hans Staub. Turnstunde, 1940
gym class rope climb. I HATED this because I had/have zero upper body strength
