My first GPS cost about $10 and had my name on it. It said "Gregory's"...
Yes, Gregory’s.......and the argument about whether UBD was better/easier to follow.....
What about the Robinson? (street directory)
David H chimes in with who remembers when they were young & the mischief you got up to & the fact you survived that to get old & reminisce on this forum with fellow Kombi drivers.
Still in the mischief stage Haven't reached the old stage yet if I make it past the mischief stage
Lotus 123 was way better than Excel
Ah remember that
The aroma from the old pubs ..... lured you in to quench your thirst ..... 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
Mischief changed to being in the $hit ..... usually associated with change in marital status
wondered who would be the first young’un to chime in with no idea what we were talking about
Trig tables and slide rules in maths
I use to work for Kaypro Computers in Hornsby
No hard drive just 2 x 5 1/4”(?) floppy discs
Thieving miserable bastard.
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.......
Playing BP Spotto on long trips in the family sedan......
and NRMA strip maps for directions on a long trip. They were brilliant !
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!
Ampol will be back soon............ as Caltex changes over.
CQ CQ anyone got a copy
Sounds like the Commonwealth Bank in the late 80's ..... some though only had one floppy drive or a 31/2" drive ...... oooohhhh we moved up with them.
Which one used to put a tiger in your tank and can anyone remember drivers sticking an imitation tigers tail to their fuel cap?
Esso..... one not mentioned in Marks post.
“Put a tiger in you tank”
I’d forgotten that one, good pick up George and Grant
