    Rather late for a car to have Eclipse fenders–PE managed to shed them during World War II. LARy 665 at Orange Empire has them, and visitors sometimes ask, “Is that a cowcatcher?” And I tell them, “no, most cows have more sense than to get in front of a streetcar. It’s a ‘people catcher’. If cars still had them, they might catch folks who wander along, sending text messages without watching where they’re going.”
