Yes, that story is true. The inventor did sue the automakers and won some kind of retro-royalty. But he had to drag them kicking and screaming into court, of course.

Looks like Bill's actually been driving that car.

Oh, yeah, well my 1958 MGA had intermittent wipers, too! And not those silly adjustable kind, either. These were PERMANENT.

I got you both covered.
My '61 Falcon had INFINITELY variable wipers, depending on how far you turned the knob and how much manifold vacuum you had.

So your wipers sucked?

#627 of 629 Only advanced wiper system I can brag of...

...is my '69 Dart GT's 3-speed wipers with power (rather than foot-operated) washer fluid spray. Probably not a big deal, but the '69 Bonneville I had only had 2-speed wipers. Heck, even my '86 Monte only had 2-speed wipers! My '68 Dart is just a 2-speed job with a foot pump.

The Model T we used to have had them too. When ever you felt like reaching up and moving the lever.

The Mack I used to drive had air wipers. The same annoying noise of vacuum wipers except the didn't stop when you stepped on the gas.
