RE: vehicle I D tag



Folks,

 

Add this to your store of absolutely useless trivia.

 

A “traffickator” was more formally referred to as a “Semaphore Signal”. Morris Minors and Austins and early Holdens had them.

 

Wishing you the best for Xmas and the festive season from Brisbane Australia.

"Start"

Most British cars had a pull switch on the fascia (instrument panel) to activate the starter. 

British cars had trafficators for turn signals - small arms that popped out of the body and had a small light at the end.  Autocar tested a 1953 Chrysler New Yorker and pointed out the "winking direction indicators" (turn signals) built into the "fin-like ends of the rear wings" (fenders or quarter panels on the west side of the Atlantic). 

Somewhere I read a British article from the early 1950's on an American car and the writer referred to the "trafficator winkers".  The button on the floor we call the "hi beam switch" the British called "anti-dazzle".

So what did the "S" stand for? Inquiring minds want to know?
