Re: Old-time cruise control
Old style cruise control worked, as stated above, through a complicated combination of speedometer cables, vacuum sensors, etc. An interesting fact: The first cruise control was invented and perfected by Ralph Teetor whose family owned Perfect Circle Ring Company. Mr. Teetor was 95% blind from an accident but he was an accomplished machinist and mechanical engineer.
