Trunkloads of Ashcans

We bought all our fireworks from Mike the Mooch who sold them out of the trunk of his Buick. Silver ashcans were 50 cents each. A brick of firecrackers was $4. Roman candles were $1.50. And then there were the buzz bombs that had a different street name I can't say here. Last I heard in 1968, Mike was in Attica.
