    Classic 7-11 Cycling team jersey - this team was around for about 16 years; from 1981 to 1990 as 7-11 and then from 1990 to 1996 as Motorola. The Motorola team was where Lance armstrong first professionally raced before switching to the US Postal Service team.

    Me and friends used to ride bikes up to 7-11 when they still had an arcade machine in the corner. Played that while drinking Slurpees.

    Selling cold ice everyday in Texas alone shouldve made him a multi-millionaire.

    Not one chubby kid in the bunch. Look at the size of those Slurpee‘s. That was probably considered a large back then. Now you can buy that shit in a gallon sized bucket. And, kids used to run around and play outside, and they probably walked or rode their bikes up to 7-Eleven for their Dixie cup size Slurpee. Now these little chubsters have their parents drive them there so they can fill up on sugar. :no:

    Ok, rant over, sorry. :oops:

    I was just busting Johnny‘s balls. He said they sold “cold ice.“ I didn’t know there was any other kind. :D

    Not definite for the old man, but his son sold controlling interest for about 5 billion in the mid-1980's.
