Here's a photo of some techy bits from my little museum.  The micrometer and vernier calliper are courtesy of our very own Plantfit:

A Rover 75 seen at Dwarwick Pier, Caithness,Tuesday19th Sept. 2017.  Note that it still has trafficators, despite having indicators fitted. I wonder if this was a factory-fit job during an interim changeover period of manufacture?

I had a Rover 80 and always hung my nose over the 110. My dad called them the poor mans Rolls Royce.

Those green polythene strips that you placed inside the top of your car windscreen to prevent sun glare.

Saddlebags were good for some tricks too.  In the cycling club I was in, somebody put a brick in a guy's saddlebag as a joke.  The victim was stopped by a copper riding home late at night.  The cop inspected his saddlebag and found the brick.  He had a hard time persuading the cop he wasn't going to chuck it through the jewelers window.  Long story.  :biggrin:
