The Peg

It's the Noobry classic car show again.

Glad to see so many pegs...




PS, sorry - Panasonic gear this weekend.

Re: The Peg

I think there is a product in the making.

A fake stick-on choke knob (with peg) for drivers of a certain age who miss the old days...

But it has to be a wooden peg.

Most racing cars are held together with a combination of gaffer tape and cable ties these days!

I was told this story by a mechanic, how true it is I'm not sure. One day (all the good stories start this way) a lady took her car into the garage where the mechanic worked complaining about poor mpg. The mechanic (they're called technicians today) checked it over, all the unusual stuff, but couldn't find anything wrong. Off she went but returned a week later with the same complaint. The mechanic being confused, said 'ok take me for a drive and I'll watch how you drive'. Step 1, she pulled out with the choke to hang her handbag on it, then proceeded to step 2, started the engine...

Re: The Peg

You've got to worry about (some) lady pilots. Pre-flight: kick the tyres, light the fires and pull carb heat, or mixture fully rich (and here's the key point) leaving fully rich, irrespective of altitude, because its primary purpose is a handbag coat-hook!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if female commercial pilots are banned from having handbags in the cockpit.

Sorry ladies, just a bit of a laugh

I like it. And it's not yet another peg on a washing line bokeh/test shot!

Re: The Peg

Yeah. I carried the regulation peg when I had a 1973 MGB: the choke puller wore its indents out after a decade or so, and this was the best solution short of a tedious and expensive puller and cable replacement.

Had to be a wooden one, of course.

Re: The Peg

My Mk 2 Sprite cost £15, so I couldn't afford petrol and pegs. I seem to remember the joy of twisting the choke cable with mole grips and attempting to hold it as I tightened the clamp. It never did work properly. It was a wonderful day when fuel injection became ubiquitous and chokes passed into history.
