Some Words from the Author: John.

I grew up in Seattle, in an area called "West Seattle" there were four other boys my same age in the neighborhood. We became the best of friends and shared many experience and adventures as teenagers in the 50's. The stories I have written are part of those adventures we shared.

I'm 60 years old, four years ago, I got back into building hot rods. With the Summit racing catalog in hand, I ordered all the neat stuff for my engine; it was such a change from the days of scrounging around in wrecking yards. I joined a car club, and enjoy going on hamburger cruise and car shows.

Rewind the 50's, keep's the memories of a special time in American history alive, and a resource for a younger generation. Share your adventures of the 50's with us, submit your stories, history is made up of experiences of the people who lived it.
