GTyankee, I remember removing those fender skirts from my Pops old Caddy's to change out tires in the late 70's early 80's! And those curb feelers just crack me up because I remember when my cousins used them and you know what? They actually worked and made a distinct sound from inside the cab to let you know you were touching curb. Hahaha!

I remember when I was a kid and would visit my Grandparents. If I held the "Icebox" (an actual refrigerator) door open for more than about 3 seconds, my grandfather would ask: What? Are there dancin' girls in there?

Calling supper "dinner" here in the south will utterly confuse people. If you invite someone over for dinner, they will most likely show up at about 12pm for lunch...

My grandparents and my parents all said "tin foil". And after hearing that growing up in the 70's, I still say it today.

Tin foil is actually more correct it's not really aluminum

Depends on which you are referring to.
Prior to WWII, Tin foil was common but later replaced by Aluminium Foil (Aluminum to keep spell check happy ) for cost reasons.

Aluminium Foil is actually an alloy but does contain of over 90% aluminium.

I guess the 'correct' name should be Aluminium Alloy Foil

Age....Smage....

A few weeks ago I got into a debate regarding Aluminium and did a lot of research to ensure my side of the argument had a solid and traceable foundation. If there is anything you want to know about aluminium ask me now.....my expanded knowledge is diminishing fast. LOL

Quicky fact - The American spelling 'Aluminum' was adopted in the American dictionary in 1925 in response to the number of times it had been spelled incorrectly for 113 years. If you can't get the people to spell it right, make the wrong a right.



Before the general American population puts a bounty on my head, it should be disclosed that the inventor of Aluminium first named it Alumium (1807), then Aluminum but finally settled on Aluminium in 1812 to appease his colleagues that liked the 'classical ring' to the name. So you Americans can rest easy knowing that you did adopt one of names......just not the 'final draft'.

I'm referring the fact that the alloy makes it a huge no-no for all my mill customers. And maybe for spelling sake we should say Al foil...LOL
