I came across this phrase in a book yesterday, “FENDER SKIRTS”. That’s a term I haven’t heard in a long time and thinking about “fender skirts” started me thinking about other words that quietly disappear from our language with hardly a notice. Like “curb feelers” and “steering knobs.” Since I’d been thinking of cars, my mind naturally went that direction first. Kids, you will probably have to find some elderly person over 60 to explain some of these terms to you.
