Any random comments you've gotten about your car's ecomods?

I'm not sure if it's the Kammback or the front wheel skirt, but a lot more people have been craning their necks or stopping in their tracks (pedestrians) to get a glimpse of the weird black car since those two mods. I've seen more than a couple big smiles and outright laughter from passengers in passing cars .

More comments from people than there used to be too, so I decided to start a list of things people have said.

Previous comments, noted in this thread:
  • "Making a batmobile?"
  • "Hey, looks like a CRX."
  • "Is that [Kammback] to expand your trunk space?"
  • "At first glance i thought it was some sort of new hybred [sic]." from this thread

Comments today:

  • "What kind of car is that? Is it French? Is it one of those Citroens?"
  • "Is that wheel cover for aerodynamics? Are you a professional engineer?" (Me: No. Definitely an amateur!)
And because I often charge the 12v battery(/batteries) with a solar panel when not using the alternator...

  • "Is that an electric car?"
