"How to Perform a J-Turn"

The Art of Manliness has some instructional driving advice. I have to admit I'd never heard of a "J-Turn."

Where I come from, in that situation we do what we call a "Bootlegger's Reverse."

You have to be comfortable driving in a skid, but that's an important part of your education as a young man growing up in Appalachia. Or used to be.

This turn was a regular feature in "The Rockford Files" and James Garner had a line "it's a little something we do around here."

My father loved that show. I've never seen it. He spoke of it frequently, though.
