Quote from: The Saint. (Owen) on November 25, 2017, 13:57:04 pmDoes anyone remember when a heater was an optional extra?
Quote from: Steve Lewin on November 25, 2017, 17:17:48 pmYep, optional heater and rubber mats were also an optional extra. Carpets weren't even an option. And for even more you could have the vacuum wipers replaced with newfangled electric thingies.They don't make 'em like that any more...I'm very pleased to say.Steve

Quote from: Michael_Rolls on November 26, 2017, 11:11:11 amI do, as was a radio, a heated rear window, spots and fog lights (all of whihc I added to my high powered Anglia!
Quote from: JohnP on November 26, 2017, 22:14:22 pmMy first car, a 1967-vintage Morris 1100 (only 10 years old at the time I acquired it, but almost terminally-rusty even at that age) had none of those either. A radio was the first accessory I added. Though only after replacing every single (rusty) brake pipe on the car, replacing both rear brake cylinders, replacing both front wings, getting a friend to weld on new outer sills and patch the front inner wings, etc. etc...A 'stick-on' Lucas heated rear screen was the next thing, though it did have a tendency to gradually un-stick itself from the window.

Quote from: meharibear on November 30, 2017, 16:30:10 pmI liked the turn indicator on this truck I photographed in Australia a few weeks ago - Very simple - no software and no electrics![attachimg=1] Not sure why it has turned sideways as it is saved here in the upright position!
Quote from: Wal on December 03, 2017, 14:48:11 pmRemember double declutching? Used to be necessary when changing down on a three gear Morris minor in the early sixties.If I try to work out now how it was done I wonder how it was done in a fraction of a second!

Quote from: lanicopter on December 12, 2017, 09:32:43 amMy Grandad had one - they were hateful things.Although not as bad as the Morris Marina he replaced it with.
Quote from: Michael_Rolls on December 12, 2017, 12:31:58 pmThere was nothing wrong with the Marina that NOT owning one wouldn't cure - says smug me!Mike (the smugness was caused by having hired one for a couple of days - felt much better when I gave it back!)
