    I have a friend who scrounges aluminum for scrap. he popped up the other day with a moon gas pedal.. the one that looks like a shoe print. it is for the left foot.

    where might a left foot gas pedal be used?

    If you lost a right leg in a tragic gardening accident it could come in handy.

    But seriously maybe left foot brake pedal for a rail or something?

    It is actually a foot rest made to match the gas pedal.

    it's on a pivot.. just like the right side gas pedal. no spring though... don't know if is missing or never had one

    it would be good for some of those rat rods with no floor. get a left and a right for the passenger side too.

    One of my project cars is a right-hand drive British Jowett Jupiter. If the pedals (and floor) weren't missing...I'd go out and see if they placed the gas on the left...

    You see them all the time in High speed ocean racing boats,It's to control the cavitation plates,which prevent surface air reaching the props when you have two or more Lambo V12's screaming in the stern of your $4,000,000 ocean racer you need to be able to control that sucker.

    You say that jokingly but I remember my Father having a little moon barefoot pedal with a ring on the back that would sit on the floor mounted dimmer switch. I wonder now if he still has it or even knows where it is.....

    Pedals would be the same, clutch, brake, gas, left to right. But, on a Jowett, the the shift pattern is reversed!?!
