J turns are fun. Can be VERY hard to do in some cars and very easy to do in others.

For the younger crowd:
The best place to see a good example of a well executed 'J' turn, is re-runs of 'the Rockford Files' and he drives an 'F' body , a 77 Firebird or older in the pre-77 shows. He made the manuever famous. Probably did not do it in every show...but all the good ones
