Edison, New Jersey: Turned-Over Car

Does your car turn over in the morning? A joke that never gets old, as several upside-down cars have occupied this spot since the early 1980s.

Turned-over car

6-8 years ago the original up-side-down vehicle collapsed and a new version was put in its place at Edison Generator. "Does Your Car Turn Over in the Morning?"

Turned-Over Car

The front of Edison Generator, an auto ignition specialist on the southbound side of Route 1 in Edison, NJ, sports a tiny coupe of some kind (the size of those Minis you see everywhere these days) standing upside-down on its roof, with a sign overhead asking "Does your car turn over in the morning?" It's been there since I was a kid, at least twenty years, and I still look forward to seeing that it's still there on my periodic trips to the area.
