Oh teenage years, how great they were. I'll always remember walking home along Pembrey Rd as a 14 year old spotty teenager when some 6th form bird, who had obviously got home before us, flashed her norks to us from her front room. Pressed right up against the glass on her window they were, lovely shape to them, or am i just reminiscing. They didnt smell of anything like, im just reminiscing about my youth like.........................
Petunia Oil my brother used to wash in it]


Patchouli Oil was the choice of the Denim & Leather brigade .... LOL


Petunia Oil was more likely to be found by the Lavender Bags heavilly favoured by those knitting Evans' Cardi's Wink

Tipp-Ex, Tipp-Ex thinners, and the pine smell from a real christmas tree. Freshly cooked mince pies and Brains Faoggots were bliss, not forgetting Um Bongo Juice drink!!! Star Couldn't beat the smell coming out of Buckleys, but then the following day it smelt like sh*t! Dead The grass bin in Parc Howard always smelt tidy, but the bottom of Charles Street did not! LOL Toffee Apples at the Christmas carnival smelt nice, and so did fresh cockles on a Saturday morning down the market. Thumbs Up Loved getting fresh fish and chips from Eddie's, Dill's or Tysia (or a Curry Butty), smelt beautiful, but I'll never forget the smell of my very first Chicken Chow Mein........bliss! Clap 

 
[IS THAT dill's top of Westbury street if so I had to queue for ages to get their chips but they were 2nd best after John's in New Dock road where I had to go with a pyrex dish to be filled not always as full when I got home though boody lovely]
You went to get chips with a pyrex dish? ShockedLOL
 
Yeap the old dear would have faggots and peas on the go then me and my brother would  pop up Florence street fill the dish(with lid) and get back just in time it was the early days of precision cooking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bloody great I don't think we paid more than 50p for about 4 portions of chips(with free bag of batter bits!!!!!

Superb trident, two stroke engines and partially burnt oil, fantastic mun, you could smell em for miles. Suzi X7, GT 250 Ram Air, Kawasaki KH 250 triple all.with Micron pipes and black ozzing stuff dripping out of the tailpipe and clouds of blue smoke when they were wheelied and you couldnt see where the bike had gone, ah those were the days. ...... Havent seen a KH 250 for about 25 years, would love to have one tbh....
