    For those of us who are unfortunate enough not to know what curb feelers are (not me of course [​IMG]) what are they!

    You usually see them on the old, long Caddys and the like. I would say they are most popular amongst the elderly and African-American communities. They come in handy when parallell parking. They're long spring like antennas that stick out from the corners of the fenders. When you come close to a curb, you can feel it rubbing. That way you don't hit the curb when parking.
