Metal ice cube trays?? The ice man bought in one big chunk of ice and put it in the wooden ice box. His vehicle was horse and wagon the same as the milkman. My first 35 Ford coupe cost $7.50 in 1948. My 34 roadster was expensive, that one was $35.00. Good running Modle A was $10.00 to $15.00. G.M.

Dave that was great, rushing to get through supper evey night so we could head to Richards Drive In, and maybe get in a good run or two on Western Ave, was also a part of our growing up in Mass.

You wouldn't be talking about Western Ave. in Lynn, would you? That nearly mile-long, straight, uninhabited road, with one Christmas tree, er, I mean stop light, at the far end. Perfect for a drag racing, after working on our cars all night, and visiting the Adventure Car Hop for a midnite meal! I should say that I never participated, but then I'd be a liar! BTW, I was a member of the "Stockers" hot rod club! Any of you former members here? Dave Maher

Dave, you mean the Lynnway, we used to run there when we would go to the Adventure Drive In, in Saugus, or after Kelleys roast beef at Revere.the Western Ave i had meant was in Allston, near Richards Drive In in Cambridge.

Ken the amazing thing is that although you have never met the various &quot;posters&quot;in person on this site, you feel you know them after a while. Like you say GM is a wealth of info and you can tell.
