What's in a name?

Steering wheel knobs where used to help turn the large, non-power steering equipped cars and trucks and as people started personalizing their cars knobs became more of a statement in addition to being a tool.

The term 'Suicide Knob' most likely refered to the unfortunate result of getting the knob stuck in your sleeve while driving.

'Necker Knob' was derived from the added feature of being able to steer with one hand and, in the days of bench seats, put your arm around your favorite girl.

I am still trying to find the origin of the term 'Brodie Knob,' possibly spelled Brody.

I would be interested in obtaining any other names and information, like sales catalogs or pictures on old cars. Please email me.
