Well, I'm way older than 40, but I remember in the late 70s of spraining my left ankle in a snowmobile incident and I could not dim the lights with my left foot, for over a year ...... but I did keep a short piece of broom handle on the dash to do the job in my 76 GMC van.......I’m not younger than 40, although I never owned anything with that “round thing”. But pretty sure it was the high/low beam toggle? I seem to recall a friend’s mom’s Chrysler LeBaron had it. That car was a bit of a sleeper, too.
she's a rat but a low 11's rat ,
little more than a bit DL hint the motor was done by pat musi when he was still in new jerseyMust be warmed up a bit.
Back when I 1st started working (on cars) my boss was an ex military guy who raced 442's. When I started, he "retired" his '68 and bought a new '72, that he trailered home and pulled the engine out to get it worked on to racing condition.
He ran IIRC 14" slicks and in a stock class, to get the tires warmed up, he started in 4th and worked down to 1st, then it was ready. It's been a while but I think he was running in the 120/high 11's range
His goal that summer was to hold the national record for his class 1 week. I don't know if he ever did.
