For those who remember just sit back and recall these
Burma Save messages and comments you and your family or
friends made as you breezed by in those 1950 cars?

For those of you who never saw the Burma Shave signs, 
a quick lesson. Before Interstates, when everyone drove the 
old 2-lane roads cross country, Burma Shave signs would be 
posted all over the countryside in Farmers' fields. They were small 
red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, 
each containing 1 line of a 4 line Couplet ... and the 
obligatory 5th sign identifying Burma Shave.
