What are 'aircraft style brakes'?
anti lock brakes?

Beats me. Only thing I know about aircraft brakes is that most all are disk brakes, but that's nothing unusual on a car, even by the late 60s.

Saw a Merkur Scorpio this afternoon, not many of those still on the road. Also a nice light tan W123 sedan.

2 more Saab 9000's today, a dark green and a beige/tan one.
Also, a mid 70's F150 with a rattle can turquoise/white paint job.

I think the guy driving it is an owner or mechanic at the local Alfa repair shop.... (obviously, the only one in town..)

E-mailed my Alfa buddy to elaborate on what he said, but he's out of the office until the 11th. Hopefully he gets the message on his smart phone sooner than that.

1986 900 Turbo (recessed lights, CHMSL - one year style), blue, looked to be in decent shape. 1986 Camry (angular body, CHMSL - one year style), looked to be in decent shape. Early 80s Tercel, looked to be in decent shape. That's the west coast.

I don't know if its a good thing or not that I actually knew that stood for Center High Mounted Stop Light

All I could imagine was that the Alfa driver was either talking about ABS or thrust reverser buckets!
