Talking Air brakes, open windows, Transformers, and Hypermileatron

Metro, I know! I was using opening all the windows as an air brake - when you roll down all 4 windows that little bucket catches quite a bit of air - didn't hurt that it was pretty hot and that helped cool us down.

I think I need a Transformer(tm). Hypermileatron?! Maybe the truly advanced hypermiler who has power brakes can set up retractable air brakes? Make the sunroof open straight up?

I doubt Michael Bay is going to include Hypermileatron in Transformers 2, but we can dream . . .
