Mark:

Great ads from days gone by.

The 1961 Camel ad has an underlying message of space exploration, right around the time of May 5, 1961 with Alan B. Shepard; Americas 1st man in space. Fantastic time to be a kid in America watching and living the Space Race.

The Post cereal ad encourages readers of Boy's Life, to get involved with model building possibly stimulating a career as an Naval Aviation Officer. What a great message.

And what more can be said of Big Daddy Roth that encouraged boys to build and paint models possibly leading to a career in auto mechanics or more. These were all great messages of encouragement to the youth. Maybe because of growing up during this era, I am biased at not fully seeing this type of message today.

Thanks for a great trip back to memorable times.

I don't remember if it was with the J.S.C.A., or not, but I did get a 3 speed "racing" bike by selling Christmas cards one year, way back in the early 70's.

Too cool Mark...especially in that condition.

Don't even want to think about the liability associated with that today.

Well I have to admit, I always wanted a pair of those x-ray specs. That would be one fun book reminiscing through all the past thoughts and wishes from our youth.  Cool book.

Wow!  That ad from Junior Sales Club of America is a real blast from my Boy's Life past.  Started my love of model aircraft with the "prize" of a Cox T28 and my entrepreneurial spirit with selling their Christmas cards door to door.  My neighbors all must have hated themselves in August after buying a ton of cards in July when I started that darned thing up in the cul-de-sac.  Day after day after day...  I swear I heard cheering when I cracked it up, and swearing a few days later when I fired the Bee up in a freshly built Lil Satan.

Thanks for that!

And who among us didn't pine for those X Ray glasses as we passed through puberty? Anybody remember hot pants?
