    How ironic, couldn't believe it when I saw it this morning, and then this post this afternoon. Without giving away any answers here's what I saw this morning at 11am headed north on Cty Rd 110 out of Minnitrista, MN. No kidding, honest really!

    It was a cute little car with the engine in the back and the trunk in the front that was called the VW and on it's roof bungee corded down was a stack of about 50 multi colored large plastic rings that we twirled around our waist.

    Go figure? Wish I could have taken a picture of it.

          There is a "car one" that seemingly trips up anyone & everyone younger than age 45, or there-abouts.

          General Motors luxury division is Cadillac.
          Ford Motor Company luxury Division is Lincoln.
          What was Chrysler Corporations Luxury Car ?








          The answer is of course the Imperial.
          Those over age 50 will almost all
          get it right.
          Others will guess brands that were never
          even made by Chrysler !!
          One person told me that Mitsubishi
          was the Luxury car from Cry-Co.

                        47 - but missed 3. (1,8 & 10) Could see Louis Armstrongs face but couldn't get the name - kept thinking Duke Ellington for some reason.

                              Jon great quiz and I appear to be old enough to remember most of them, as they were part of our culture on black & white TV. Missed a couple but like SandBoy I am part of the " baby boomers " and those were the days. FYI Leave it To Beaver's stage Mom, Barbara Billingsley, passed away as well as Tom Bosley, father on Happy Days.
