Amazing how things change when you take being #1 for granted.
I have the same memories. But I also recall that around that same time American made cars were rusting away from new to scrap metal in only a few years. I recall a popular bumper sticker from that era which proclaimed that: "On a quiet night you can hear the Ford's rusting." Not that this problem was limited to just Ford's.
