Haha! Reminds me of my buddy's Nissan Stanza that he had in high school. For those who have never heard of it, the Stanza was a strange hybrid of mini-van rear sliding doors in a tall wagon form factor. Severely underpowered. I'll never forget heading up to the mountains on I-70 for some adventure, getting passed by anything and everything, everybody in the car leaning forward in the vain hope that it would help the vehicle move faster. My buddy casually reached over and flipped a switch on the dash...so my eyes followed to see what he was doing. Turns out he had flipped on the "Booster Rockets"...

Yes!!

As a youngster, we often rode with my friend's mom in her Volvo station wagon to Cub Scout adventures. She had a red switch on the console, complete with clear plastic safety cover. The label read "Grenade Launcher."

That was just one version wearing the Stanza badge. The sedans were far more numerous but not as cool. The vanlet was called the Prairie in its home market, a much better name, I think. There are still a couple here in town.

Somewhere on the the 'net I've seen a rocker switch with custom-made logo saying "ejection seat" with an appropriate shocked ejected passenger image on the lever.

If I ever find it again I'll post it here---very funny.

The switch or the sticker?......had that same sticker on the volume knob on my Yamaha stereo back in college, could’ve used that switch a few times back then too, ah the good ol days of driving hours to catch the next show!

When I installed my accessory lighting switches, I chose to go with "alternative" switch covers:



Much more fun to tell a 5yr old to "Turn on the Zombie Lights!" I didn't go with the alternative rear light switch cover because it's not PG-rated...
