verb

  • Beginning in about 1947, I became aware of the verb "brody," which means to slide around a corner in your car at high speed. "He brodied the corner." These days we'd call it a power slide or a 4-wheel drift.

    Proof: In the 1940s and 1950s, boys and young men attached a brody knob to the steering wheel, allowing them to turn the wheel quickly, which you need to do when you are brodying.

    Google "brody knob" and you will see photos.
