You know you're an Ecomodder
If you really can't be bothered
Because the neighbours say
That your car is lookin' frightful
'Cause your mileage is delightful
It's the Ecomodder way

It's aluminum and plastic
And a gooey kind of mastic
That didn't set quite right
It's your own divine creation
That goes breezin' past gas stations
It's what Ecomodders drive

I could go on, but I think that's quite enough.
RIP Maxima 1997-2012
