You know you're old when your shoes have Velcro instead of laces.

You know you are old if you remember putting on curb feelers (and tail fins).

If you had a car with the vent at the base of the windshield that you opened with a lever under the dash.
If you had a vent window on each front door of the car so you could flick your cig ashes out.

Those vent windows were also pretty handy for vent. Especially when you pushed them all the way out so the wind blew right in. Also handy if you locked yourself out.

And remember that after a couple of years the rubber seal rotted and rain got all over the floor. (even if closed.) It was O.K. because the floor covering was rubber.

My first car had a big wing nut in the center of the dash just below the speedometer. Turn it and the windshield pushed out at the bottom using a scissors jack type of device. Close to a/c not.

You are old if your car had vacuum operated wipers that stopped working every time you accelerated.
When it really rained hard you would speed up and then coast so wipers would go real fast and clear windshield

The first jeep, 53 Willys, I drove in the army had those vacuum wipers with a little lever so you could "manually assist" the wipers when they slowed down.

YKYAO you remember having a rubber bladed fan that assisted the defroster in your 1940 Studebaker Champion
(which, that model by the way, was Indy Pace car!)

How about if you remember replacing the brake cables on your Ford because it didn't have hydraulic brakes.
