Come to the local drags at Beaver Springs, PA... you'll see lots of the slowest cars out there that have minor aero-mods to help keep the "parachute effect" down. Some of those mods include cutting huge holes in the back bumper covers, folding in mirrors, stuffing foam strips in the gaps between the hood and fenders, etc.

I think you're assuming that I'm talking about professional drag racing only... I'm not. Even guys with Geo Metros take their cars to the track on weekends and bracket race. That's where it's at.
