    Remember when oil came in cans like these. Found these in a corner of my garage.

    Wish I had a nickel for every quart I put into a motor. Had that spout you shoved into the can and only one hole was needed. But have also used the can opener. Those where the good old day's. Gas was 28 cent a gallon. Coke was a dime and crackers where a nickel. But working for 50 cent an hour. Man those where the day's.
