Dashboard Flashback

The Puzzler

RAY: Some time ago I used the puzzler regarding the man who was responsible for introducing to America the car radio. Bill Lear was his name. From Lear Jet fame. And the radio was called the Moto-Rola. Motor. Ola.

TOM: Oh. Great name.

RAY: It turns out, Bill Lear also invented another car related device that was popular in the seventies. In fact, the car I owned had one and it was something you would find in the dashboard back then, but you'd hardly ever find one on a car now.

The question is simple: What was it?
