Spinners. No, not the porn term but the one for cars. You know, that ridiculous shiny ‘outer hub’ that spins independently of the actual wheel on which it is placed.
Well, I saw one the other day coming into Muizenburg, just off Boyes Drive actually, and I admit, because you don’t see them so often on the road (or at least I don’t), this madly, forever spinning little disk curiously piqued my interest, mainly because, well… I just can’t believe there exists such a CHOP that actually thinks it looks cool!
I mean honestly. This must be the dumbest thing ever invented. Maybe it is the shininess, or perhaps the rebel factor of a disk who refuses to play along with the wheel, but I just don’t get it. How does it make a car become cool? Particularly when the said car it is located on is a pimped out Toyota Tazz with a crappy custom paint job and some big letters on the front windshield screaming out, “Ride or Die”.
C’mon, it’s still a Tazz for crying out aloud? Maybe the lettering should read “Here be Doofus”? I don’t know, just a suggestion. In any event, can anyone explain the mystery of the spinner to me then?
(Bearing in mind that I think under-car coloured lighting is really cool of course…)
