Day 3 of #selfeducate: Where does the phrase “go ham” come from?

Thanks to Siobhan and Freya, today I am investigating where the phrase “go ham” comes from.

After a quick search, I have concluded that “going ham” comes from the auto industry. HAM apparently stands for High Acceleration Movement. So I guess I should be writing “go HAM” from now on.

Normally my #selfeducate topics will be slightly more sophisticated than this, but it is currently 2 AM here and I’m tired. Check in tomorrow for a new topic!
