    A few I remember from the 1950s

    Record players
    Kleenex tissue dispensers
    Full size spare tire
    Driver controlled spotlight
    Points and condenser ignitions
    Ammeters and DC generators
    Diaphram fuel pumps that run off the camshaft
    Flat head, or side valve, engines
    Car radioa using vacuum tubes, and a vibrator.
    Vacuum operated windshield wipers, that slowed down when climbing a hill or accelerating, and sped up going downhill with a closed throttle
    Steering systems with extensive play in the steering wheel.

      The full size 55-57 Chevys Alamo had an optional “ prismatic, traffic light viewer, so that if you also choose the large, external sun visor that stuck out over the windshield, you could look through the traffic light viewer and easily see the traffic light — so you new when you could start again from a red light.

        FINS and LOTS OF CHROME. The excitement of new styles coming out at least every two years. One that comes to mind is any american car was affordable by anyone in any income bracket. When minimum wage was $1.85 and a well equipped New Corvette cost cost $4,800. Today the minimum wage is $9.00. (five Fold) that what it was in the early 70s. This should put a new Corvette today at less than $25,000.
