OK all of you old schoolers. Bet you haven't seen one of these in years.
That would be correct.
OMG! I had to squint, the shiny-ness of the top threw me for a bit, but I sure used 'em eons ago. I remember when Caddy came out with an auto-doer of the same function, still had the object shown....(odd language to not give it away.)
When I first learned to drive in 1981 we had a car that had one of those. Really quite convenient.
I guess I have been living in Peachtree City to long as my first guess was it's a horn in a (very tricked out) golf cart. :lol:
I actually liked using that one better than the turn signal switcher for the same function.
I also used to use these. Know What it is?
Is that a head gasket from a straight 6?
Years ago I had to move an old truck from the 30's or 40's. I couldn't figure out how to start it. It had a starter button on the floor right next to the dimmer switch.
In the 70's I worked in the fleet garage for a police department. One day a bunch of us took a unmarked police car to lunch. I drove but when I went to get out of the car, the mechanical siren when off and would not stop. People from office buildings were all staring out the windows wondering what was happening. The guys I was with we're rolling on the grass laughing. Finally one of them said " take your foot off the button". It was on the floor under the floor mat!!!
When I was a kid, my brother had a ~1970 Opel GT that had a foot pump operated windshield washer. The only cool part is if you tapped it, the wipers would wipe once.
Head gasket from a V-12?
First picture is a dimmer switch. However, the 1956 Buick that our family had (Pink / Grey) had a similar switch under the accelerator that you basically floored to start the car.
My '76 Monte Carlo had the dimmer switch on the dead pedal ... good times.
Yeah, my first car had one of those!
But from a flathead six.
Well maybe one of the two head gaskets from a flathead V-12.
Guess you've never been caught with your Hi-beams on, while trying to make a U-turn with a clutch then. You tend to run out of feet wanting to dim your lights. :lol:
I remember that foot clicker button...lol. I think it was pretty cool.
Well, yes it was, but I prefer the lever on the steering column as it give an easy way to flash lights when they on or off.
And welcome to the posting part of town!
