Honk if you’re horny

15 June, 2017

We’ve all been there, sitting at the lights when the car in front waits a beat too long to get underway. No biggie, we give them as much of a courteous toot of the horn as possible. And undoubtedly, most of us have been on the other end of it.

Problem is, there’s a very fine line between a “Hey, look, no rush, but would you mind, um, getting underway soon” kind of honk, and a “What the f*&k are you even doing in there?!?! I’m LAAAATE” sort of honk.

Well, fear not. YouTuber Mark Rober has come up with a solution, and it’s pretty good. A mod for the ages we reckon.

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.
