You don’t see the need because you were not around in 19XX (or was it 18XX?) when the nomenclature was established. We talk differently now. This is the same thing as the controversy about running boards vs/ roof walks. As with others, I default (when I am thinking about it) to the industry terms.

Is the "B" end of the car really the back end? Or is it the end with the hand Brake? Anybody know how the MCB came up with A and B?
