Brush off your JC Whitney or Almquist catalogues and see if you remember these:



1] "A- OOO-GA" horn - use only when you see a sharp chick.

2] Spring compressor to lower your car - $ 3.50 in 1965. Get that sharp "lowered" look and ruin your ball joints within 50 miles.

3] Pin Strip decals - featuring a music scale to put on the dash over the radio or designs to put on your fenders or hood

4] Chrome headlight "brow" or shade - they even had some with a red reflector on top

5] "ECHO Cans" - big chrome exhaust extension for that " powerful sound"

6]Plastic seat covers - freeze your a** in the winter and burn your a** in the summer

7] Exhaust " cut outs" - just hacksaw your exhaust pipe before the muffler, install this plumbing valve with a handle and with a flick of the wrist you have "open pipes" for that open exhaust race-car sound!

There are a million more , I'm sure.

I couldn't find a picture of it, but I saw an old LaSalle like this '40 model that had a big metal can hanging from the right passenger window. Apparently, you filled the can with ice and the wind while driving supposedly blew the "cool air" inside the car. Talk about "outragious parts." Early a/c!

I don't remember dangle balls - must have known them by another name.

Steering wheel "spinner" knobs could be opened to place a pic of your girlfrend or a "pin up" pic of a chick w/ great bodily accoutrement's.
Lets add :

-pink plastic streamers to place on your antenna
- continental kits [ big bucks for them ]
-wolf whistles
-dash mounted red light magnifier
- "flecks" - glitter of different colors to accent hubcaps and other parts
- shag rug custom cut for the rear package tray
- '55 Olds "spinners" to customize hubcaps

I remember those, they actually worked. The ice melted and ran down vanes in the box. Air flowed over the vanes and the evaporative effect cooled the air. Evaporative cooler!:idea: Work great in low humidity levels and the desert.:wink:

Gee, "Our LaSalle ran great!".

dangle balls were weird..... they strung accross the uppewr interior of the car , on the top of windshield and had many balls ( 8-10? ) hanging down on threads about one inch ( balls were usually colorful and about the size of a ping pong ball)
some were made / ''knitted' over ping pong balls

the spinner u refer to we use to call suicide knobs....lol east coast jargon i guess

I thought of a couple "doo-dads" my dad bought for his '57 Merc. One was just a small plastic viewer that attached to the upper inside windshield molding (remember when they were steel?) and you could see the traffic light through it. "Traffic light finder."

The other was a pair of rectangular chrome-plated attachments that were full of holes, that attached to the front edge of the front doors. They were supposedly "wind silencers."

Anyone else remember these babies?
