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 ;)

    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
