rumble seats

who remembers rumble seats and who remembrs riding in one




Aug 19, 2000

rumble seats

i do remember riding in one but for me it was either the early 30's or the very late 20's but i thought it was treat even though my mother had to get in with me if it was before 1926 that was before my time i know they had them earlier than i can remember because my uncles used to talk about them and they were born in 1902 and 1907
