I could not help but post this. I unloaded the drivers door I got in Asheville, NC this morning and noticed the oil change sticker on the door. Check out the phone number. Boy I wish it was dated.

I just love that phone number. 5 years from now I will remember the phone number CR 7 9894. Hopefully someone from the Greenville area can tell us what the CR exchange was.

When I was a kid, we had a party line. If you wanted make a call, you had to listen to see if anyone else was using it first. Our phone number started with IV.

I love the fact that the sticker made it through all those years...today you get a computer generated receipt, put it in your wallet and a month later it's so faded that you can't read what it was for, who it was from or how much you paid...LOL...on your sticker I still read that the car had just over 59 K miles on it when the sticker was put on. Try doing that with a WalMart receipt today...LOL

I think we're all dating ourselves...I remember when, if you lived in a small Canadian town...all you did was dial the last 4 digits of your phone number to call anyone in the area...in 1960...my phone number was 4658...why I remember that I have no idea...LOL

Don't have to be from the area to know CR is 27. C=2 and R=7.

I have an old oil change sticker in the door of my '46 Austin, and it was so nice that I had the painter mask it off and save it when the car was painted.
I bought an old collectable rifle once and under the buttplate was a sticker from a store in Schenectady, NY with a 5 digit phone number on it. I found out that area had not had 5 digit phone numbers since WWI.

You are obviously too young to remember when the exchanges went by their names. I grew up with a phone number that started with TW. It was the Twinbrook exchange. The phone numbers that were in the Brainard office would have looked like BR5-5555. Those days have been long gone but us old farts can remember them. the CR7-9894 would have been a Crestview or Creekside number or something like that.

Yep we had a DI (Dickins) phone number and no zip codes. We shared a party line with our next door neighbor. Mom said be home for dinner, rode our bikes anywhere and everywhere and actually did have the endless baseball game at the corner vacant lot. I remember a gallon of milk was 29 cents.

LOL...I love the "what cost what" back in the day stuff...it always conjure's up memories from 50 + years ago. I remember in the very early 60's, Orange Crush had a contest...what you needed to do was remove the cork liner from underneath the bottle cap of soda...under the liner was a letter and you needed to spell "DRINK ORANGE CRUSH", when you spelled these 3 words you received 24 free Crush soda's (and they came in that cool wooden crate). My job everyday after school was to hit every vending machine in town and remove the bottle caps. It got to the point where if I was late or had detention at school, some of these shop owners that had a vending machine would dial our 4 digit phone number to see if I was Okay....LOL

Anyways, this promotion from Crush lasted from June to the end of September...if I remember correctly, with all the bottle caps I collect, my family received well over 100 cases of pop...It was a great Summer...all the pop we could drink...LOL.

I then decided to become even more entrepreneurial and took the pop bottle cap without the liner, turned them upside down and nailed them on to a piece of plywood...sold these mud scrappers for $2.00 each...LOL

Good time guys, good times....LOL
