How does a curb feeler work? Ive never even heard of that lol

They scratch against curbs making a noise to tell you that you're close to the kerb. Helps avoid rim-rash if you're a bad driver..

Curb-feelers will touch the curb before your tire/wheel does. Listen for the the scraping noise. In Japan you might see cars with parking 'poles' to assist in a similar fashion.

Doh, answer was on the next page!

Back in the day, it was more to avoid scuffing the white-walls :)

I worked briefly for a guy that owned a late model DS - they're mesmerizing. The steering wheel is art, and the wonky suspension is fascinating.

Is that an Auburn below it?

Those old cars are tough, lol. I can pick a Cord out of a lineup, but most kinda-sorta look the same to me. :D

Shame the wheels weren't straight or you weren't over to the left a little bit.

I was walking back to the car to put my camera away and I liked the lighting so I took a quick snap, just wish the car wasn't filthy from the drive up to the track.
