I remember the steering wheels being even bigger on the city buses, and some steering wheels even had a little round knob sticking out of the steering wheel itself, which the bud driver could grab hold of and use when turning the steering wheel instead of grabbing and pulling the wheel itself.
OMG!WOW Aunti M. you just took me down memory lane. I remember those from the early 60's. If they were not available locally they would order them from the J.C. Whitney mail order catalog. I never had one but some of my more risk taking friends on the Sandbar had them and had different names for them. Some socially acceptable and one that was not very nice to say and in some towns in Suffolk County could get ones head caved in and their Z-28 taken from them.

The third picture down is his favorite although he also really liked the video of the girls backpack stuck in the door as well. I told him in the car that you put the pictures on for him to see. His response was an excited “really? He really did that for me? How nice.”
