It's old. It was a universal tool and at one time or another everyone used or needed one. A real time saver!

Thanks, BB.

Next question:

What American car introduced in 1961 had windshield wipers that parked down to the left - the opposite of 'normal' ?

'61 Buick Special? Looks like they park to the right, like a normal/modern car.


Here's a hint:
Not only did the wipers sweep in the wrong direction, they were powered by neither electricity nor vacuum.

some of the older cars had manually operated wipers, in other words the passenger might twist a knob.

Not what I had in mind, but I like the way you think.

Here's a picture of the wiper motor on the car in question...

I hadn't thought about Thunderbirds.... On a '61 Thunderbird, the wipers both park to the middle, like a Mercury; so you're at least half-right - one of the wipers parks to the 'wrong' side On the car I'm thinking of, both wipers park to the left (driver's side), which leaves a large area in the driver's view that doesn't get wiped.
