Yes, it's the headlight switch that was in older cars - to make the headlights bright or for normal driving - high beam or low beam.

My '74 Roadrunner had one. The button would freeze in the winter because of the snow on my boots.

While I'm not *that* old, I've been interested in and have worked on old cars since I was a young girl. I've driven a car from every decade starting with 1920 through 2010.

I also collect antique glass and service pieces and I can tell you when a piece of Tupperware was made. So, I'm likely to pass most, if not all, these age tests.

I have never missed an age test question yet. Yes, I do remember tramping on that button to turn the high beams on and off. That's a good one!

My second car was a 1958 or 59 Datsun. One of the first imported to the US. I LOVED that car. It had bench seats, 4 speed on the column and push button start. Just couldn't get parts for it, so it got parked in the back 40, where eventualy, a tree fell on it. This thread made me nostalgic, so I looked it up on the web. WoW..there was even a youtube video!
