Frank, car 1505, ran across this web shared piece. I picked out the car related items.
I came across this phrase yesterday "FENDER SKIRTS".
And "steering knobs." (AKA) suicide knob
Since I'd been thinking of cars, my mind naturally went that direction first.
Any kids will probably have to find some elderly person over 50 to
explain some of these terms to you.
They were rear bumper extenders and spare tire covers that were supposed to make any car as cool as a Lincoln Continental.
When did we quit calling them "emergency brakes?"
At some point "parking brake" became the proper term. But I miss the
hint of drama that went with "emergency brake."
