    57 was a mighty fine year, with numerous great things happening. Perhaps the greatest was the arrival of,

    Money may not buy happiness, but it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

    I was 2 yrs old in 1957. So I dont really remember it. The 60's I do remember, and I don't miss B&W TV, the fake wholesomeness, and the constant fear of the "Cold War"
    Still, it was an amazing age to grow up in! A lot of changes to absorb in our culture,some good, some not so good.
    One thing that I really do miss was the yearly new car showings in late summer,early fall. It just seemed like there was no end to new ideas and more horsepower.
