Understandably desperate to sell cars using any feature, Ford announced the My Key nanny key for new buyers hoping to keep their teens driving a "certain way" by limiting stereo volume, chiming in if a seatbelt isn't being used and, most dramatically, limiting kids to speeds of 80 MPH or less. Will this help anything? What was the most self-destructive feat you attempted in an automobile? Would the My Key have made a difference? There's a decent-sized list of things we did in cars that were just amazingly stupid, but there's one moment in particular that always drifts back into our heads when we visit our family manse. It was a wet night and the roads were empty. The Focus ZX3 had just gone on sale, filling our head with thoughts of Colin McRae. After a bid of pleading, a good friend, brand new Focus keys in hand, let us take the wheel. Using teenage psychology, we convinced him it was just for a trip "around the block." This was true. But the block included a fairly wicked 90-degree turn. Having only attempted the maneuver in a completely empty parking lot we approached the curve, pulled the handbrake and essentially drifted around the corner. It worked (just barely) and, thankfully, there was no oncoming traffic. That was the first and last time we were allowed to drive one of his cars, understandably. That's pretty tame, we're sure, compared to what you all have in store. For the record, we were barely doing 40 mph when we approached the curve so the My Key wouldn't have done anything.
