  1. Postal workers who used to come to the door to drop off the mail, before these neighborhood distribution boxes took over and mailboxes got disconnected from the house or the front of the house. Back then, the Postal Workers were the eyes and ears of any good neighborhood. If kids were getting abused, they would often find out, and make anonymous calls, if someone's mail was piling up, they would call for a wellness check. The Postal Workers had the pulse of the neighborhood and they made it a more connected and happier place.
     
  2. Visible bumpers on cars. Back before they started covering bumpers with plastic, it was possible to look at almost any old car and with a basic knowledge of Department of Transportation guidelines, get a quick idea of within a few years of when the car or truck was made based on the thickness, relative height, rubber (if any), connection points and other aspects of the bumper. Now, those gorgeous functional bumpers are made of the most nondescript steel possible and hidden under a thin layer of pressure-formed plastic. I miss seeing bumpers.

I hate glasses. Never wore them till about age.........40. Went from I see fine to I can’t read stuff without them almost overnight. I remember the moment precisely. At work, I get up at @ 1am for a reported house fire. It’s several station districts away so I’m going alone (engine and truck not going) and it’s long before the computer aided dispatch that brings up the address and map route in on the computer screen in the rig so everything is paper run maps of 1 square mile grids. You cannot carry the whole county that way, so for more distant calls we used Thomas Bros maps for addresses and route in. I stumble downstairs sleepy and get into my rig, pull the Thomas Bros, turn to the page and I cannot read any of it......not one word. WTF??!! How the heck am I gonna get to the call? I got no other rigs from same station to follow (which I usually do). While I’m sitting in the rig, motor running and door up squinting at the map trying to see anything the first engine goes on scene and announces nothing showing, comes back a few seconds later and says hot wall plug, he can handle, cancel everyone else. So grateful I got canceled I’m now scrounging thru the various offices and desks at 1am looking for magnifying anything. I find a old pair of cheaters someone left laying around. Try it out and I can see enough to read the map. So, it’s back to bed only to get up again around 2:30. This time I can read the map. Bought my first set of cheaters 2x next day. Over time it has gone from drugstore cheaters, to prescription readers now to distance and reading correction. Can’t see shit without them. I hate glasses.

Manual windows and locks in cars.Are we that lazy now?

Yeah, I used to think I wanted a low tech low budget car again too. But with the dog in the back seat begging for the window down at every stop that ain't happening. And the thrill of clutching and shifting is gone. And lugging around cases of cassettes and cds, not missing that so much. And who wants to sit on a cold seat for a half hour on a January morning or feel the sweat drip down their ass crack in the summer? And 2 or 3 windshieldwiper speeds used to seem adequate but now I can't get the right speed with infinitely adjustable intervals. And having to reach across the passenger seat and out the window to adjust that damn mirror I somehow bumped when was walking by, don't miss that. Nor the usual tune up, brake job, shocks and tires every 20k miles.

Other than that, I really miss my old 61 Rambler Classic station wagon.

Totally with you here.  For me it was when I was maybe 45...tuning up a sewing machine that my grandmother gave to my daughter.  Absolutely killer headache...no understanding of why.  Followed up with trying to oil the gears in a clock my grandfather and I made when I was a teenager, headache so bad that I was in bed for a solid day.  Went to readers, now have progressives.  what a PITA.  Added damn hearing aids to the mix this past year because my lovely wife got tired of repeating everything.

Side note...I threw away my last LA Country ThomasGuide just about a month ago!

I took leave of my senses somewhere between the time I divorced my 1st wife and I married the 2nd one.  Now I'm on my 3rd wife but I don't think I ever regained my senses, too much damage done to them.

That's not a U.S. model right? We don't have wing-glasses in our Rodeos. I still have my 1997 Rodeo, I've managed to keep thethe old gal running, she's the best snow and mud vehicle I've ever had. Manual 5 speed, manual transfer case with the granny gear, when the conditions are rough, she turns into a hell bitch, intent to fuck up the environment and beyond.

That was a stock photo from the net, not mine, which was all red and a US model and did have the windwings. Could be Isuzu weened them off later. I bought it when we lived in the San Bernardino Mtns and it really was good in the snow. I especially liked the lockable hubs when most suvs of the time were becoming AWD. Those hard seats and rough ride were murder on the buns on the 3 hour drive to the boat though.

Those hard seats and rough ride were murder on the buns on the 3 hour drive to the boat though.

Mine is a 1997, I could see where the wing glasses would go, but there is a solid mounting point for the rear view mirrors in the whole window angle there. Mine has electric windows (unfortunately, I replace regulators like used Kleenex in that truck) so maybe the wing glasses are eliminated when the user picked the electric window option?

I still have a little 1975 Fiat with no AC and wing glasses.

Your 1999 has the locking hubs, do you have a manual five speed? I have the manual five, and the differential lock with the little transfer case lever next to the five speed shift.

Apologies for all these questions, I didn't know that there were Isuzus like you have, let alone one as late as 1999. They were made in the GM factory, who also made the Honda Passport. I think some of the Chevy Blazers had the same basic setup as the Rodeos and Passports.

I bought that truck with maybe 20k miles on it back in 2002 or so, and nearly got rid of it so many times through the years, each time I figured I would get rid of it later, and stashed it somewhere. Then this year it was on its last legs from sitting outside so long, I put some elbow grease into her, and now I remember why I love that truck so much, the fully boxed frame, the short wheelbase, the transfer case is gear driven with none of those pullies.

Mine is a 1997, I could see where the wing glasses would go, but there is a solid mounting point for the rear view mirrors in the whole window angle there. Mine has electric windows (unfortunately, I replace regulators like used Kleenex in that truck) so maybe the wing glasses are eliminated when the user picked the electric window option?

I still have a little 1975 Fiat with no AC and wing glasses.

Your 1999 has the locking hubs, do you have a manual five speed? I have the manual five, and the differential lock with the little transfer case lever next to the five speed shift.

Apologies for all these questions, I didn't know that there were Isuzus like you have, let alone one as late as 1999. They were made in the GM factory, who also made the Honda Passport. I think some of the Chevy Blazers had the same basic setup as the Rodeos and Passports.

Can't help ya Mike, mine was a '91. I sold it around '97 or so.

'91, apologies, I first read your post as a '99. I guess my eyesight is shit. That explains the wing glasses.

No worries as long as you admit you made a mistake and were wrong about something...:D

Yeah, I mistook your Rodeo as a '99 and I was pissed that my '97 doesn't have wing glasses.

But now that you got me looking at it, I wonder how hard it would be to put 91 or earlier doors onto my '97. Wing glasses are just the shitty shit shit, I love 'em the way Boothie loves strippers and Borg Warner transfer cases.
