    Used to get cross with the dash pots on SU's and automatic chokes on anything!

    Yep, either that or the plastic strapping used on cardboard boxes. Doubled over, pushed through the door seal at the top and hooked over the door locking button. fiddly but nearly always possible. Manufacturers eventually reshaped the buttons, took away the mushroom top so as the tape couldn't grip.

    Any Ford key would open 99% of Ford locks in the 60s...

    Purely platonic or something more serious?

    For me it’s not words, but phrases…

    I’m sorry

    I was wrong

    I respect your opinion

    Please, you go ahead

    Thank you

    You’re welcome

    Hello, how are you today?

    It seems NO PROBLEM has replaced YOU'RE WELCOME but those are phrases.

    It would. I got endless amusement from seeing his van in car park and moving it a few spaces along. Never far enough that he couldn’t see it from where he knew he’d parked it. It took about six times before I hang around to see his reaction and fess up. My van was a newer than his so the locks defeated his key.

    I was in the Orlando airport yesterday. They had a Pay Phone on the wall in a relatively newly remodeled terminal... so it was intentional. Local calls free. Shocked me.

    SU was terrible. Dual or Triple Webers were easier to adjust, but balancing was an art, not a science.
