  • Another thing I miss

    Catalogs.
    Used to be .50 got you a catalog.
    .75 would get you a catalog and a decal.
    Most places, $2.00 would get you a catalog, a decal AND a T-shirt.
    I spent a good portion of my "chore money" on car mags, the first place I'd turn was to the back and look at the ads.
    Computers are great, the intardweb puts us in touch with far more people than magazines ever did, but there's nothing like a catalog in your hands.
    I miss having a big ol' stack of 'em.
    I still ask for one whenever they're available, but they jes ain't as many people puttin' 'em out .

    Let see, I get a catalog often from Heartland, all sorts of gadgets, Blair, a clothing company, Critics Choice, both CDs and DVDs, Micro Center, electronics, and a scientific equipment company.

      Maybe I should have been more specific.
      I meant "Speed Parts" catalogs, like the kind that advertised in Hot Rod and other similar magazines.
      I get all kinds of catalogs from people I never asked to send me a catalog for all kinds of crap I have o intention of buying.
