It goes up vertically above the license plate if the battery were to die you can still open it from there. Other than that ONE place it works in the glove box. I made this video as just a side note spoof on the new technology that's becoming common while showcasing a fun car in the process. I had NO intention of this video becoming popular or getting so many views and comments. I've had a LOT of negativity, and hateful comments. Most of my videos get a great response and a lot of LOVE in the comments. Along with all the hate, in the last 30 days, I've gained 44 new subscribers from this whim video and I've made over $325.00 from this video. For that I say thank you! THANK YOU VERY MUCH! THIS CONTEST RAN IT'S COURSE AND IS NOW OVER. I WILL BE DOING FURTHER GIVE AWAYS SOON. =) (This contest began November 17th at 9:40 Pacific Standard Time 2012- and ended Nov,17 2012 10:06pm the same day. Congratulations to KoldNawledge0 from Canada- WINNER!)
