Okay, enough with all of that Japander crap we've had on Classic Ad Watch the last three weeks. I'm tired of those no-good furrin' cars, coming over to America and stealing our jobs and marrying our sisters with the help of Eddie Murphy and Michael J. Fox.
Cars, even cars that no longer work, are still massive collections of interesting, well-engineered mechanisms. They're like massive collections of great parts just waiting to be used. And that's exactly what Tom Jennings did when he needed an X-Acto blade handle.
