The Golden Age

There is a saying attributed to Yogi Berra, that “nostalgia ain’t what it used to be.” That saying rings true where today’s Warped site is concerned. It has some interesting and unique nostalgic items that are sure to interest just about anyone.

At The Golden Age, the motto is “Strange Moments, True Stories, Fun Facts.” There are quite a few of them here at this trucker-oriented site. There are interesting articles, such as the death of the Tom Sawyer Diner, the golden age of Bethlehem Steel, and signs of Wildwood, New Jersey. There is a interesting online game you can play called Highway Hauler. This is a real time simulator where you have to drive a truck for a certain number of miles within a certain time frame. Estimated playing time is eight hours, so it is very “real time.” It can be quite boring, but you need to keep an eye out for smokies. Looking for something to wear? It has its own downloadable iron-on artwork, with instructions on how to do it. There are some links to some personal Web sites as well, which adds to the entertainment value.

This site pledges to continue its mission of providing quality design and mild entertainment absolutely free of charge. It is a mission in which it succeeds. At least I think it does, since the Warp-o-Meter gives this site an 8.0 rating.
