As kids we'd be in the back of a transit van, and fight over who'd get to sit on the toolbox or wheelarch.

Not dangerous at all.

In my childhood home...When we got in central heating (oil) we had to switch it on ‘before’ we went out so the house would be warm enough that evening when we got back....from the switch being flicked to on it took about two and a half hours maybe longer for any feeling of warmth. Now, the house I’m in is about 10 years old but has a gas heating system and from flicking the switch on a freezing cold morning to stifling takes about 15 minutes... some difference.. with the timer also you can have it on in the morning before you get up. Tends to stop you wanting to get up.

Back in my day we had to slither on shore with jokes for legs, and learning to breathe was no laugh either.

Young ones these days with their prehensile this and apple that.
