    Okay guys -- fill me in here -- I cannot discern size from the picture and I have no idea what these are. Do they go on the steering wheel, are they for the gear shift?
  3. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Good questiom trunkman , my question is was it safe to ride with you guys when you were looking at these :-)

    Thank you -- pardon my ignorance but I did not know what a steering knob was, nor the pin up part of it. I have since looked it up and had my "aha" moment. Now my informed mind can say -- "way cool".

    I was told they were real handy, when you & your girl where cruisin , she could cuddle in next to you & you could put your arm around her shoulder & steer with your left hand on the steering knob.

    Only if she didn't see the girl on the knob!Thanks walksoftly and vintagemad!

    For her sake you would keep your hand over it, so as not to offend her, or only pick her up after dark. :)
    I'm going to have to keep my eye out for some of these.

    HAHA!walksoftly!I think you might have done this before!

    No, they were outlawed by the time I started driving & dating. I didn't know they existed until an episode of Canadian Pickers a couple of weeks ago. I only knew about the ones that we had on our tractors, & they had no pin up girls on them.

    Canadian pickers? I'm going to have to look that up!You would have had some crooked rows in the fields with those girls!

    LOL walksoft . I remember those knobs but they didn't have pin ups but then maybe they kept them covered . We all drove older cars and the young men just drove using that and one arm on window . Lookin' cool as can be :-)
