Default Remember putting the keys in the.....

[8D]Anyone remember putting the keys into the ignition when it was in the dash?
I was driving my wifes Mazda Millenia and realized that her ignition is located on the dashboard.
Man it was really something, thinking of my 57 ford and the 63 chevy with the ignition on the dash, keys hanging down and swinging to and fro with the 8-track playing 3 Dog Night or CCR, my hand on the Hurst floor shifter, with enough power underfoot to light up the rear tires. [8)]

sorry, I occasionally have flashbacks for the 60'z.

Anyone else been there...?

I remember the keys in the dash, but I only had a '61 VW. Couldn't afford a Z.

Ah, the 60's... My ride was a blue '59 Chevy with the horizontal "wing" fins and giant taillights. A tank of gas was $5.00 and cruisin' burned it up pretty quickly at 12-15 mpg.

57' Chevy Hardtop, 283 V8, 3 on the floor, 8 Track-Stereo with a reverberator (anyone remember those...made everything sound like it was coming from a tunnel). Route 1 thru Philadelphia was my playground. 12 lanes wide (6 in each direction). Downtown was at one end and the Route 1 Drive-in was 20 miles north on the other end. Loads of traffic, hundreds of stoplights to drag race from. Gas was about $.25 a gallon and the stations gave things away (drinking glasses etc.) to come in and fill up....Now I hate driving thru there when I go up north with all the traffic and lights and everyone driving like they are late for work. Times sure change

Oh Oh, here we go. Now I have to tell you about the 54 Chevs. that unless the key was in the lock position you could take it out and still start the car and use it without the key and the darndest part is that a lot of the time I didn't even take my keys with me! Cars just didn't get stolen back then. Just imagine that today. Of course they didn't have PT's back then.[?][8)]

My dad's S2000 has the ingnition in the dash. AND, it's a push-start. I'd never seen that before. I really liked it, though...

I remember driving a 1968 Rambler American with the keys in the dash.
Can't remember if my 1971 Datsun 1200 sedan had them in the dash or column.
