Back Page - Bumpers

Woman and car

Lots of pictures of our family and friends are posed just at the front or rear bumper of the family car. There was a time when the "bumper" was a distinctly separate part of a car. It's purpose was mostly to protect the fenders and grille of the auto from minor scrapes and dings. They were also important for pushing other cars.

Now they are integrated into the body design. It doesn't protect the body, it IS the body.

Back Pages - Running Board



The Running Board.
Have you ever seen one?
Here are a few pictures of people
sitting or standing
on a Running Board.


So... You say, "What's a running board?

Don't be concerned, a lot of people today have never seen one. Some might think a running board must have been what kids played with before the invention of skate boards.

Well, it's not. A running board was a part of an automobile (or earlier, a buggy) that facilitated getting into an automobile, a sort of step.

There is also a sub-category of RUNNING BOARDS, it's
CHILDREN ON (RUNNING) BOARDS.
