Vacuum powered wipers were a blast. You would step on the gas and the vacuum would all be used to advance the distributer and the wipers would stop dead. You would take your foot off the gas and they would go like hell. If you were at high enough RPMs and the vacuum built up enough when you took your foot off the gas they would start up so hard that one would get flung off into space never to be seen again. The are probably a couple of 9 inch wiper blades still in low level orbit!
Being born in 81, I'm kind of glad I missed out lol. I had read that online too. Driving up a hill and the wipers would stop. Absolutely hilarious.

Post 40 years from now....

Being born in '21, I'm kind of glad I missed out lol. That popped up in my brain feed today too. Having to drive the car manually, steering it myself and (gasp) having to stop the car on my own. And what are "gears" anyway? Absolutely terrifying

Wrong 21.
Of course then there is Humfrz who was indeed born in 21. No other digits involved.

If they are anything like the covered bridges I have driven you are a brave brave man to take a lowered car through them! They are not renowned for having level driving surfaces.
