I'll match your dimmer switch on the floor and raise you an ignition switch in the dash on the left side of the steering column.

You win this round, mine is a '69 ford p/u. That switch may be the only thing stock on it.

More serious question that doesn't really belong on this forum. I was watching "High Sierra" a while ago and when Bogie arrived at the mountain resort he was hired to rob (this is how it fits on gun forum). The resort handyman told Bogie that he would "drain the water out of his car because it was going to be cold that night. This movie was from 1941, When did antifreeze become available for general use?

8 track was OK for the car- but for the house, you wanted a reel-to-reel tape player- and a good turntable with a diamond stylus.

F4- Ethylene Glycol antifreeze ("permanent" antifreeze) went to market about 1937, but people still used the earlier method until the 1950s- adding methanol to the cooling system. However, those early systems were not pressurized, and the methanol would gradually evaporate, and need replacing. Or draining the radiator on really cold nights.

Does anybody else listen to records? I've got a few that I listen too every now and then. Mostly Bob Wills, Johnny Cash, and Ernie Ford.

33 1/3s, 45s, or 78s?

Most of mine are 45s and 33 1/3s.

Records seem to be gaining a little in popularity. I noticed just the other day that the new MCM Electronics catalog has five pages of phonograph needles, whereas last issue they had about a half page.

Coke machines were converted from 5 cents to 6 cents and you had to have the penny?
The "Voice of Firestone" was on TV and featured a bunch of opera singers?
Elvis sang "Jailhouse Rock"?
Elvis was drafted into the Army, and gave away his paychecks?
The movie "The Greatest Story Ever Told".
The Gene Autry and the Roy Rogers movies?
WWII "victory gardens"?
"The Japs bombed Pearl Harbor" being broadcast on the radio, when most people had never heard of Pearl Harbor?

What happened to 4x4's and SUV's having removable tops and fold down windshields? Use to be all the "off-road" vehicles had 'em, but now very few do?

I can only think of the small Jeeps and some Land Rovers that have them, but not folding windshields....
Fold down windshields. I guess death by automation/expense/corrosion control.

It's easier to punch out the entire body as a unit, the bolts and man hours to screw them in we're costly, and joints and moving parts equal rust.

Goodby to fun.

Barely!
You may not want to step on that switch too hard. Winters conning and that cold air will blow right up your pant leg.
