First topic message reminder :

Alright folks i know I'm an old fuddy duddy who lives in the past and hates all things new , but i make no excuses for that i miss things from the past .

So here's a thread for anyone who wants to share things they miss or just dont see or cant get anymore .


I miss the penny goodie Sad , do you remember when you could go to the corner shop with 10p and get a bag of sweets ... at mine they did those jelly teddy bears 3 for 1p !! or those hard pink chewing gums that were in a greasepaper wrapper twisted closed at both sides they were 2p

To get to the corner sweet shop i had to walk past the local car dealership and as a car mad 9 year old i often stopped and walked around my favourite car on the forecourt promising myself i would buy one one day it was all i wanted , so what was this automotive marvel a Ferrari ?, a Jaguar ?, a Merc ? no the object of my childhood desire .................................. a Triumph TR7
