1962 - Half frame 35mm.
Original price was $50 way back when. The "EE" stands for "electric
eye." We were nuts about electric eyes back then. I remember the
electric eye that would open the door at the supermarket. The door
would go "bong" when it opened.
My Uncle Eddie had an electric eye on the dashboard of his Oldsmobile.
It dimmed your headlights if it saw a car coming toward you at night.
It didn't make any noise, though.
My father had a Pontiac. You had to dim the headlights by stepping on a
big old switch to the left of the clutch. It was a real manly switch.
There was an Indian Chief (Native American) on the hood. His head
lit up when the lights were on
Now dimmer switches are on the steering column. They're
part of the windshield wiper/washer/directional light switch. That
switch costs a lot of money if you need to replace it.
Speaking of old cars: Why does AM radio reception suck nowadays ?
