    My first GPS cost about $10 and had my name on it. It said "Gregory's"...

    Ah remember that :)

    The aroma from the old pubs :rolleyes: ..... lured you in to quench your thirst :D ..... your shoes didn't stick to the floors as they were hose out every night/morning and you had the saloon or public bars then they brought on lounges with carpet :( ..... not forgetting the beer gardens so the whole family could go into the premises ;)

    Petrol stations when the only fuels you could buy were Standard, Super and Diesel.
    BP had a dedicated two stroke pump for BP Zoom.
    Speaking of petrol stations, Golden Fleece, Ampol,Amoco, Total, Texaco.......all just a memory now.
    .....and there wasn’t anything like a self serve petrol station anywhere.......

    May have been my early childhood but I remember all of those. I used to fill my first 2 cars with Super, was worried what the unleaded would do to the engines.
    Our local BP had zoom right through to about 2005. Think Klingners servo in Jamestown still has it. 2 stroke at the browser, that's novel!;)
