"I must be getting olde ! "
Yup, with that spelling especially. (As is I)


Our Phoenix Cruiser 2100, "Bob", has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

How about working three pedals with only two feet


LOL, When the teenagers parents where dating my daily driver had a switch on the floor to control the hi-beams.
The floor of my first pickup, from left to right; Parking brake, dimmer switch, clutch, brake, throttle, and starter.


You mean it was a modern truck? No foot operated push bulb for the windshield squirters.[emoticon]


Well, "modern" in the sense I started by using foot to work linkage to engage the starter drive and switch on the electric motor, did not need to crank it by hand.
I had a lot of vehicles before I got one with windshield washers. And even more before I got one that had working washers. I added washer with foot pump to my first Pete. It only had 3 pedals, but it had 2 gearshifts...

I had to ask the shop we’ve been using if they would work on a car that didn’t have a computer (my “new” car doesn’t have one). He said some of his mechanics would not; but a few preferred to work on cars without computers. My new car has three peddles and a dimmer switch on the floor; the wipers stop where they are when you turn the switch off.

Dad had a '49 Dodge pickup. 6V system and the battery was under the drivers side floorboard. Yes, it had a foot starter & foot dimmer switch. And I think it had vacuum-operated wipers.
A friend had a Rambler with 2 gearshifts, one was the overdrive.
Next up - a Mack 10-wheeler with a 5 + 4 transmission.
And I'll bet I could still split-shift an Eaton 2-speed rear end.

Just for fun, ask a teenager what qualifies as a long distance call and how much they think it would cost per minute. [emoticon]


FWIW, standard shift cars are still available from Honda and Mazda. Not sure about others ...


Manual shift cars are theft proof. Young'ens don't know how to operate a stick shift.

I would love to see some of the kids start a 1931 Ford with them levers on the steering wheel and remembering to open the fuel valve under the dash and the 3 pedals of course.

Early '50s 3/4 ton GMC, windshield washer was not a option.

The funniest issue I have seen with young driver. A fresh hired driver, working on the same haul I was broke down. I stopped to help, and was under his when I decided my old 1693 Cat had cooled enough to shut down. The boy cut the switch, but could not get it to die.
