The intent of this thread is to understand that where has the true essence of a automobile disappeared in the sea of automatic gearboxes, power windows, projector lamps et al. Are we driving 4-wheeled robots instead of car?
Below are a few features which our earlier cars had and in due course these essential features were discontinued to make the cars convenient rather than keeping them as a depiction of one's style!
1) The Chrome ringed headlamps used in Fiat's and Ambassadors.
2) The bench seat in front
3) Steering mounted gear lever
4) Manual Window roller
5) Manual adjustment Cassette receiver.
6) Manual adjusting ORVMs
7) Chrome Hub Caps
8) The Front sun shade
9) The Choke Lever
I have added just few of them, please feel free to add many more!
