Keychains. They will soon be a thing of the past thanks to fancy push-button starters and “smart” keys. Can something really even be called a key fob if there is no key attached?
Well, at least when you drive a JNC you can still get that visceral, at-one-with-the-machine thrill when you rotate a lock tumbler with a good, old-fashioned blade and bow. Plus, they provide another personalizable connection with the car because they can be unique, sentimental or a collector’s item unto themselves, rather than a uniform black oval designed specifically to fly out of your shorts pocket and into the driver’s seat-center console trench because it is smoother than a suppository. What symbol of motoring tradition sways from your steering column as you bomb down the streets of your town and what does it mean to you?
What say you, dear reader? As always, the most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a toy. Click through to see the winner of the last QotW, “Is Toyota making the right move?”
While the effects of Toyota USA’s move from Torrance to Texas will reverberate across SoCal for years to come, one thing is clear: Californians are sad to see it go and Texans are more than happy to welcome them with open arms. While we do not agree with most of this week’s winner’s assessment of our home state, the internet itself is JNC‘s home and r100guy‘s closing sentence rings truest of all (emphasis added by us):
The move to Texas is a good one. California is no longer is the car culture mecca it once was and is stuck in over regulation and self importance. Texas is a dynamic market with business friendly environment and a strong healthy economy. California is becoming less relevant all the time. The “car culture mecca” is now the internet with people all over the world sharing ideas.
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
