Texas limits the amount to 24 12oz containers unless you are moving into the state.

Is that the number of open containers you're allowed in Texas in your car?

I have heard stories of those days from friends and co-workers. As long as as the driver was not legally drunk, he/she could drink while driving. I think the law changed in the mid 90's.

It changed in 2000 or 2001. I remember when I first started going out on the weekends in 1999 you would drive down the freeway and everybody was getting drunk in the car. The driver couldn't have a drink in hand so if you saw a cop the driver would just hand somebody else their beer.

You can drink in the car in Missouri, so long as you're the passenger: http://ipp.missouri.edu/files/ipp/attachments/missouri_state_and_local_open_container_laws.pdf  <-- not the statute, cause I can't find it right now, but close.
