I told the Wife that I'll take the rear skirts off for our upcoming trip to Slovenia, mostly because of rumors of how Austrian police supposedly get anal about any less-than-legal thing they find in foreign cars, and how they supposedly try hard to find those things if the car is from Eastern Europe. I don't know how much truth is in those rumors, but I want to reduce my chances of getting stopped. I'm leaving the kammback on though, since it is easier to take off, probably helps more, and most likely is slightly less attention getting than the wheelskirts.

So here is what made me smile: The Wife asks, "Well, maybe we could keep the skirts on for most of the trip and take them off at the Austrian border? The car looks so beautiful with wheelskirts." That just melted my heart
