710 knob

A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage.

A blonde came in and asked for a seven-hundred-ten knob.

We all looked at each other and another customer asked, 'What is a seven-hundred-ten knob?'

She replied, 'You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new one.. '

She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there.

The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like.

She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710.

He then took her over to another car which had its hood up and asked 'is there a 710 on this car?'

She pointed and said, 'Of course, its right there.'

If you're still not sure what a 710 is:

This is a true story. My dad and I used to set up at a lot of small fleas in the area when I was a kid. I loved old emblems so a lot of what I sold came from local junk yards that I "picked" and I'd sell of the duplicates. Well this would be in the late 1970's at SAC park in Shrewsbury Massachusetts where I sold a 710 emblem from a Corvair to a lady who thought it funny some company would place such an elaborate thing on a valve cover... I had a hard time containing myself, but did not correct her. She was blonde too...

I had my sister-in-law believing that the air in her tires needed changing every season. As in, if you leave that hot humid summer air in the tires come fall when it gets cooler that humidity will condense and rust your rims from the inside out.

I've been considering the penguin is driving along in his car joke but don't want to chance being permanently banned.
