Car Floor Mounted Headlight Dimmer Switches? What year did they take the High Beam/ Low Beam button off the floor and put it on the steering wheel?

....and vacuum windscreen wipers. Faster you went, the slower they worked!
Foot hard down on gas pedal, they stopped, lift off gas, they worked, foot hard down, they stopped, lift off gas, ad infinitum.

I don't know if those shelters still have in them what was put in them, or if they were ever converted into storage or other kinds of rooms. But the rooms are definitely still there!

Another post on a different thread made me think of this.... Did any of the guys out there have BB gun fights with your friends as kids. My friends and I did this all the time. It's amazing we never lost an eye. We had a rule you could only shoot from the neck down. Like we hit what we aimed at!
