In the 1950s, cars were often equipped with curb feelers. They acted as "whiskers"
to alert drivers when they are at the right distance from the curb while parking to
avoid damaging the wheels or hubcaps. Curb feelers are still used today on some
hot rods when a 1950s look is wanted.

Burger Chef was a fast-food restaurant chain that began operating in 1954 in Indianapolis, Indiana. It expanded throughout the United States, and, at its peak
in 1973, had 1,050 locations. The chain featured several signature items, such
as the Big Shef and Super Shef hamburgers.

In 1982, the General Foods Corporation, then-owners of the Burger Chef name trademark, divested itself of the restaurant chain, gradually selling to the owners
of Hardee’s. The final restaurant to carry the Burger Chef name closed in 1996.
