Ever since I can remember I have had a phobia of driving. Only those really close to me knew the reason why I never got my full license - most people just assumed I was too busy with school or couldn’t afford to pursue it. I was extremely fortunate to do my studies in big cities where I could walk or use public transit to get around. But I knew that in today’s world, at least where I live here in Canada, I would have to eventually get my full driving license. I started that process 6 years ago - but eventually allowed my licence to expire because I didn’t feel comfortable enough or ready. As someone who has always been fiercely independent, the fact that I have a fear of driving has always been something I have been ashamed of. If I can be a baby lawyer and a pinup, etc why is it so hard for me to do something millions of people do everyday? I have finally made the choice to face my fear head-on and pursue my full driving license. Today I kickstarted the process and passed my G1 (again). Although I am scared of this next chapter, I know I can do it. Driving phobias are openly talked about where I live - so I just wanted to share my struggle here in case any of you experience the same thing. We are all stronger than we think we are! #positivevibes#positivethinking#pinup#pinupgirl#pinupgram#pinupstyle#vintagestyle#teamtaty#tatyanaboutique#vintageinspired#pinupmakeup#pinuphair#retro#retrohair#40sstyle#50sstyle
No power steering? No problem! In the 30’s and 40’s as the great depression was fading, more and more people were driving cars. This meant creating a platform usable for young drivers, the elderly, and housewives (this was before p90x was invented, give them a break.) An engineer named Francis David invented the first practical power steering system in 1926, this hydraulic system was installed into only around ten vehicles, including Buicks and Cadillacs, it was not much liked by the public. During the war, however, vehicles were equipped with power steering on both fronts and it was deemed necessary for the easy operation and agility of heavily armored vehicles. after WWII power steering took the US by storm. By 1953 over 1 million cars were eqquipped with power steering, by 1956 a quarter of all American made cars were using the hydraulic system, and the relationship between car and driver had changed forever.
