Revelation of The Seat Clevis Serpent

I feel a raging need to shine a light over the 1929-up seat clevis pin and spring, one of the most tasteful and intelligent designs in the entire history of the Motor Company. I can spend hours in the garage just staring at this spring from different angles dreaming of times way before my own.

I simply don’t feel this mechanical geniousity has gotten the attention it deserves. It’s even beyond mechanical; it’s more frankly described as intellectual, and still this delicate construction is a bit overlooked.

The design of the spring is so immaculate it will always remain a symbol of what this whole world used to be all about at one point, before over-commercialization swept in and fried everything on the altar of good taste, everyone who’s ever installed or popped one of these springs knows what I’m referring to and I wasn’t’ even around at that time, that’s how superior the design is; it stood the hardest test of all – the test of time.
