Pool petrol and that lovely tinkling sound as the engine of your car pinked as you try to get enough power to go up a steep hill

Castrol R lubricant in a performance motorcycle engine wonderful stuff except you had to change it every 1000 miles or so and decoke the engine every 5000 miles

Starting handles on cars and remembering to keep you thumb out of the way so it didn't get broken when the engine kicked back and threw the handle out of the dog clutch (my first car was a 3 wheel BSA Scout with a V twin air-cooled engine, it used to do that on a regular basis, a bit like a horse trying to kick you Wink )

My E93a Ford Popular had the same murderous properties, plus 6 volt electrics. You could see about 10 yards up the road with headlamps on full beam. Three speed box with reverse where first normally is. Finally a windscreen wiper (singular) which stopped when you accelerated or went uphill.

3 gallons of petrol for £1

I'm old enough to remember when you could get four gallons and a shot of Redex for a pound.

Decent Saturday night TV as opposed to the visual sewage that passes for entertainment

Going down the corner shop with a Tanner (6d) and coming home with enough sweeties to last a week!

They still air repeats on Radio 4 Extra (DAB) and it still sounds fresh and funny.

Turning the television on 5 minutes before you wanted to watch something "to warm up" Smile

Only turning the television on when you wanted to watch something instead of what happens in some houses where the first person to get up turning it on and the last person to go to bed turns it off Sad

It doesn't seem that long ago when I was complaining in my Local when the price of a pint went up to 25 pence which meant that I couldn't get 4 pints and a packet of crisps with my pound.

Bloody heavy for taking throw ins when wet from rain, especially for a 13 / 14 year old on a cold Winter's morning Sad
