The Tweel 8 track tapes, vinyl records, analog TV, Windows OS 3.1, 95, or 98, and a host of other items have come and gone in the past, and your car tires could go this way eventually. Michelin is experimenting with The Tweel, an airless tire that could make the inner tube a thing of the past. The pros are that having a flat tire would become a thing of the past, when the tread is worn, it can be replaced, as opposed to discarding whole tires, lessening the environmental impact by reducing the rubber discarded, and the polyurethane spokes can be designed to handle differing road conditions, but it isn't ready for market yet. Driving over 50 mph can result in undesirable vibrations, also the sound is loud to the ears when driven at high speeds. When these new airless tires eventually hit the market, there might be another valuable item though that goes the way of the dinosaur. Apparently spike strips are useless against them. I can't see law enforcement officers being overly enthusiastic about this new technology!

1950s 1960s Deluxe Reading Corporation Jimmy Jet A vintage Jimmy Jet in action. Deluxe Reading sold these in grocery and drug stores and their toys were place on the top shelves to keep grubby little hands like mine from them. I remember bugging the heck out of my parents for this toy and many others. Most of Deluxe's toys were big and fanstastic! The grocery and drug stores had lay away for the items because most of these toys cost a week's salary back then. Please excuse the filming. I was sick when I was doing the filming and looking through a view finder. The lights were dimmed so you could see how it operates.

Featured Member- Stalzz aka Steve --our 3rd Steve! Hi, I am known as Stalzz on your site. I was born in November, 1964 and I'm from Denver Colorado. I love old movies and old music and old TV shows, and I collect a lot of it on DVD and CD. I also collect celebrity autographed memorabilia. I have over 500 items signed by various celebs from movies and TV shows, with a specialty in character actors and actresses. The only genre of autographs I don't collect are sports figures. I don't collect the autographs to sell them, I collect them to keep them. My most favorite ones are from Astronaut John Glenn (personalized to me), actor Edward G. Robinson and comedians George Burns, Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. I have been a part time radio broadcaster for 20 years at Denver's public radio jazz station KUVO- www.kuvo.org I'm single, I've never been married, I have no kids but I do have a black cat named Spooky. I really enjoy seeing all the old TV show clips on You Remember That, especially the musical ones and classic TV commercials.

Documents and Other Evidence from JFK Assassination Plot Revealed Today Brass knuckles and a pistol holster that were in Jack Ruby's possession at the time of his arrest after he murdered Lee Harvey Oswald were presented along with other historical documents and memorabilia connected to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy during a press conference in Dallas today. Long-hidden items and documents related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy were revealed for the first time after spending nearly two decades locked inside a courthouse safe. Dallas County DA Craig Watkins presented the articles at a Presidents' Day news conference while standing next to brown and white file boxes stacked in a pyramid. The items include a purported transcript between Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and Oswald's killer, nightclub owner Jack Ruby; a leather gun holster that held the weapon Ruby used to shoot Oswald; brass knuckles found on Ruby when he was arrested; and a movie contract signed by then-Dallas District Attorney Henry Wade. Watkins said investigators told him about the contents of the blue, two-door safe shortly after he took office in 2007. 'And every DA up until the new administration decided that they wanted to keep it secret,' he said. But he decided 'this information was too important to keep secret.' One of the most intriguing items was the typed transcript of an alleged conversation between Oswald and Ruby. The transcript - which hasn't been examined by experts and has already been called farfetched by some - includes talk of killing the president at the behest of the Mafia.

Superman Muhammad Ali Comic Book DC Comics put out this 'Superman vs. Muhammad Ali' comic book in the late 1970s. They must have printed way more than they sold. I remember them being advertised on TV as 'collectors items' in the mid-1980s. (By the late 1970s, Ali was a mere shell of his former self, so I'd bet on Superman.)

A Moment of Silence Please Hello Folks, I posted this earlier to one of Jimmy Jet's postings. I wasn't sure if all of you have seen it, so here is my tribute to Bruce, aka Jimmy Jet. I'm posting a picture of his favorite toy. The Jimmy Jet toy is that big blue toy sitting on top of a box. Hello All,It has been a while since I've been on here and I come with some bad news. Jimmy Jet whose real name is Bruce, passed away on June 29, 2008 and now is in the arms of the Lord. Bruce became a penpal of mine after I bought a few items from him on ebay. We both had an interest in old Toys and Jimmy Jet was one of his favorite toys! His parts helped complete my Jimmy Jet and I will truly miss him. I urged him to sign up on this site and he commented many times how much he liked it. He was an avid aviation buff and now he can freely fly the friendly skies of heaven! Rest in Peace Bruce, you will be missed. Chuck-Dezurtdude

South Fork Bridge Time Traveller Photo This photo, taken in Canada in 1941, has been the cause of considerable speculation. It was taken at a public ceremony in British Columbia to celebrate the reopening of the South Fork Bridge. Look at the individual with the clothing that seems to be from an era in the future. He is wearing what looks like modern sunglasses and a printed t-shirt--not items of clothing one would see in 1941.

The Automat Automats were a type of make your own meal cafeteria. Customers bought individual items by placing coins into slots next to the food you wanted. The coins unlocked a glass lid and you helped yourself. Automats were all the rage for a while especially during the 1950s.
