Things that once where but are no longer....

12 posts in this topic

Its always interesting to see what the automotive industry decides to trend into. Most curious for me are the things that where once common but are done away with.This one caught my eye for two reasons and I'll give you a clue. There are two things missing from this door that are still for the most part fairly common. A few manufacturers have done away with one of these but few have done away with both (referencing mostly mainstream European vehicles).

 

So, do you know what is missing?

Just a guess, but I would agree there is no manual lock doohickey on the door. There doesn't appear to be an automatic lock/unlock button either.

 

It appears to me that there are 4 buttons for the windows, a child-lock button for the windows, and I'm not sure what that dial is but I'm guess it's to adjust the side mirrors.

Cup holders and the lock rods.

 

And soon, interior door handles to open the door.

I guess that I don't see a lock button or a manual lock.

Speaking of strange, I rented a buick the other day and the parking brake is a little button on the console.

European vehicles have little or no drink holders because driving there is a serious matter with no allowance for distractions.  So if you need coffee or a soda, you stop at an imbiss, purchase, consume, and then get back on the road.

That's because you can go through 3 countries before you need a Diet Coke or to pee ;)

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
