I'm starting this thread for discussion purposes only and not to create something for some to disparage, aurgue, or insult any posters. So if you can't abide buy that I say move on... I know the engine (correct LOL) versus motor debate will rage on forever but that's ok. What I like to read about in others opinions is how some automotive equipment has been tagged with misnomers. Case in point is the Automatic and Standard transmissions. Th eopposite of automatic would be manual but back in the day manual transmissions were viewed as the standard issue and hence their name. But I still use the term though I try to check myself. Another example would be the "emergency" versus "parking " brake. For this I can see both being appropriate though in some forums it is only a parking brake to which I would ask what would you do in an emergency? (Must be the result of never driving a "standard" trans...LOL) We could also look at high beam versus country/highway lights as well. So what are your views and are there other pieces of equipment that come to mind?
