Yep. When I had to talk and there were too many people at home that I didn’t want listening, there were drive-up phones nearby. They had about a 8 ft long cord to the handset, and you’d pull up, reach WAY out to drop in your coins and dial her up, then bring the handset into the car and roll up the window leaving about a half inch for the cord.
I remember seeing a couple of those, but they were rare.
I know where 3 of them are. Dial tone and everything.
When you were driving along and you had to make a phone call there was a whole process you had to follow #1 Find a gas station (they all had phone booths way off in the corner somewhere) #2 Make sure there wasn’t a slug jamming up the coin slot or the mouthpiece was unscrewed and missing or the whole thing was yanked off the phone itself and just hanging with the headset still in its cradle #3 If you found any of those problems start at #1 again Sometimes it took stopping at three or four different phone booths to find one without any problems !
