What is a “Jesus Bar?”


Imagine your friend picks you up in his new 435-horsepower Mustang GT. Pleasantries are exchanged as you admire the interior, but then as you approach a stoplight on Peachtree Dunwoody Road, your friend threatens to “open it up.”

After a squealing start, the car catapults to 50, 60, 70. Both your life and judgmental bystanders flash before your eyes. As you approach a corner, you cling to the ceiling-mounted handle above the door and expel the lord’s name. That’s the “Jesus Bar!”

In a nod to hapless joyride passengers, Chevrolet designed the new Corvette with an extra, center-mounted Jesus bar.
