Hey, I saw on here a coupla weeks ago some dudes chatting about Kerb Feelers and saw pics of Kerb Feelers with 8Balls and Dice on the end of 'em. Where can I source items like this on the Internet ?

Any help is appreciated. I have spent enuff $$$ on my 18's, I don't wanna bang 'em up by hitting 'em on a kerb when I park.

how do they work?!
They scrub on the curb of a street to let you know that you're getting just a little too damn close. The scrub you hear after that one is the sound of chrome being scratched from your wheels.

No, that's what they're for. Back in the 60s-70s, the Caddys, Buicks, Chevys, etc just got too damn big to try to parallel park. You had no idea how far away from the curb you were. So someone came up with the idea of "curb feelers" that would scrub the curb to let you know that you were close enough. People originally only put them on the right side of the car, of course because you park on the right side of the street. It was the pimps that started putting them on both sides as more of a a customizing feature than utilitarian.

By the way, they also made electronic curb feelers that would sound a buzzer and flash a light in the car, to let you know they were touching the curb.

You could probably modify the backup beepers out of the rear bumpers of new suv's into some stealth curb feelers. It's a beeping that gets faster as the wall or whatever gets closer to it.

i like those on bombs, but nothing really after that, but its your ride, not mine :cheesy:
They looked good on the Pimpmobiles too. The early '70s Caddys like the '72 and '73 Eldorados and CoupeDevilles.

Four small, cheap power antennas and you'll be set.
