Back in the boom years of the middle-aughts, I seemed to come across multiple automobiles riding spinners each day. They were all over. And from some slipshod research, I discovered that they weren’t cheap. People were certainly spending wisely when they invested in such gear.
But now….no spinners. I never see them. Not on the Escalade, not on the Gran Torino. Not on the Cadillac Brougham, not on the Dodge Avenger.
With this stupid economy backsliding, I understand why people are refraining from purchases that aren’t core necessities*. No new spinners. Fine. So where the hell did the existing ones go? Are the spinning attachments stolen for scrap chrome? Are they being sold into foreign markets? Are the Chinese stark-raving-mad for spinning rims, eagerly throwing their newfound middle-classiness into 22″ Vogues?
Somebody. Anybody. Help me find the spinners.
*Spinners are one step removed from “core necessity”. For perspective, diapers and infant formula are two steps removed from “must have items”.
