Memories Of Childhood...


I don't know what it is about the Retread Plant..but it brings back memories of being a kid in the early and mid 70's. Something about that tire smell... I've always loved that smell and I remember as a kid, for some reason it was and is prominent in my mind. It makes me think too, of race car drivers of the 70's and watching racing on TV.....The Wide World of Sports! I don't know, again, something I can't really explain. I just love that tire smell....memories of the Wide World of Sports and tires stores, and valvoline ads...I know, I'm weird!
