Quote from Classic and Vintage Cars Ownership and Restoration :
The colors, styles, smell, and fun enjoyed in riding in them went a long way to ensuring that someone would always be as passionate for them now as the first owners were when they came from the showroom. The quality of the seats, the timber‐framed dashboard and the often peculiar windows added to the romance and mystique of their day.
The headlights were larger and often sat between the mud–guards and the bonnet like 2 eyes patrolling the view in front as you drove along. The former was always separate from the engine compartment and when bright young kids wanted to be different they could be stripped off and the old jalopies they enjoyed had a certain element of the dare—devil look about them.
There was a running board on the side on which passengers could stand when entering or leaving as the vehicle was often much higher on the road than we are used to today. The bumper bars were just that, solid pieces of equipment that allowed you to bounce off anything you accidentally hit, such as the vehicle in front or behind when parking. They comprised chrome and rubber and were a statement of themselves.
