Are non-car fans incapable of reading, too? jeez...

I remember when I was like 7 years old, I just burst out laughing when I recognized Mustang wheels on a Ford Ranger. I had read the brochures for both vehicles (my parents brought me to local dealers, where I walked off with a copy of every brochure). So, I recognized that the Ranger driver probably thought he had a fast car, since he had Mustang wheels, but he's actually a complete tool.

If a 7 year old can recognize poor taste in car modifications, an adult should be able to read "Pontiac Firefly." I'm wierd, though.
