Keys to the World of Motion

So here's another mysterious item for you. It comes from the now-defunct "World of Motion" attraction at Walt Disney World..

World of Motion opened in 1982, and was an inaugural attraction at EPCOT Center, which opened that same year. It offered a humerous vision of the history of transportation, and in the development of automobiles over the years. And that brings us to our mystery item..

This nametag was worn by General Motors staff working at the attraction. This particular example was on a keyring attached to some kind of van that sat backstage. What was that van for? Who rode in it? It boggles the mind.
