V8 Power


1937 Cord Beverly


A cool old car. This one I have actually ridden in. Notice the stalk coming out from the steering column. This is the shifter. You can see the shift gate, which shows you the shift pattern. It was mentioned how one shifts gears in the old car when I rode it in, but I do not totally remember the scenario. Something like shifting to the location in the shift pattern that you want to shift to and then it will shift to that gear after you depress the clutch, versus depressing the clutch and shifting while depressed as we do with today's cars.
