    Ha! Gary made a mistake. I thought I'd never see this day. Now let's see if he admits it.

    Are you sure you borrowed something? You didn't seem to take anything to me, ya old grouse!

    If you are talking about borrowed, I put it in quotes so I believe that I am covered. If it is something else, let me know because I do not see it. If the year is incorrect, that is not my error.

    Gary, I assume you copied something from your email and pasted it here, as there is a broken picture link in your post when I click "Reply With Quote"

    All we are seeing in your original post is the sentence, '"Borrowed" from an e-mail that I received."'

    We are not seeing what you, "Borrowed."

    Thanks. That is strange. Obviously, I am doing something wrong. What is strange to me is that the cartoon not only shows up (for me) in my original post, but also when it was replied to by Jake.

    I will try to just give you the cartoon in words.

    The picture shows two dogs on a couch with one reading a book entitled; "100 Years of Automotive Innovation".
    That dog says to the other; "The 1941 Packard, now that was really something. First car to come with standard paw-friendly power windows -- no opposable thumbs required."

    How did they like the Lincolns with push-button door opening?

    Personally, I don't get it. If you have seen a 1941 Packard equipped with power windows you will see why. The switch is a small bakelite piece that protrudes out of a stamped chrome frame maybe 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch, and slides up or down to operate the window. Presumably, the cartoonist is illustrating the rear seating area which is the only placement of the switches perhaps someone's rambunctious pooch would be able to actually reach. And then, I can maybe visualize a dog inadvertently lowering the window. It would have to be one hell of a smart dog to get it's paw on the underside of the small bakelite switch to raise it back up, though!!

    But I have heard of cases of dogs (and young children) being seriously injured or killed with rocker style armrest mount switches.

    No injuries reported but when we are on the highway and suddenly hear one of the rear windows opening, the only culprits have to be Golden Retrievers as there is no one else back there and the offender has his head hanging out in the breeze!(Late style GM rocker switches).

    Instead of 'child safe' switches, you need 'Golden Retriever safe' switches. Can't blame them for wanting a little fresh air. LOL
