                                                 DO YOU REMEMBER?
Have you ever thought of some of the options and accessories that did not catch on or just plan didn’t
work. Here are a few who made them.
Swivel Seats  -  Chrysler
3rd headlight that turned with the wheels  -  Tucker
Automatic headlight dimmer – General Motors  - great idea except it could not tell an on coming
headlight from a street lamp
Air ride  -  GM and torsion level by Packard  -  wonderful ride until it broke and the car was either 2
inches or 2 feet off the ground
Cigarette dispenser in the steering wheel  -  Chrysler
Under dash record player  -  Chrysler  - nice music until you hit a bump in the road and the needle
jumped out of the grove
Swing Away steering wheel  -  Ford
Removable portable radio  -  General Motors
4-6-8 engine   -  General Motors
Push Button Drive  -  Chrysler, Ford and Packard
Talking cars  - Chrysler and GM
Self winding clock in the steering wheel  -  General Motors  - kept good time providing that you drove
the car every day
Seats that turn into a bed  -  Nash  - we won’t say any more
Lube your car while you drive  -  Many makes
Speedometers that change color  -  Chrysler and GM  - ( OK .... they were standard equipment... but
still a gimmick )
I’m sure you can think of and remember many more, some of which will give you a good laugh.

Let’s look at the difference between us and England
Windscreen   -   Windshield
Bonnet           -   Hood
Boot               -    Trunk
Drophead       -    Convertible
Hood              -     Roof or top
Mascot           -     Hood Ornament
Dynamo          -     Generator   
Dickey             -     Rumble seat
Saloon            -      Sedan
Squab             -     Seat cushion
Wing               -     Fender
Scuttle            -     Cowl
