How would the electric motor, or even the internal combustion engine, react that close to a magnet that strong?

In the army we use tow bars. Anyone ever see someone tow another car without someone back there to hit the brakes?

The monofilament would theoretically be invisible.

You're no fun!

Basjoos said that he can draft himself--drafting another vehicle does not help.

Don't racecars draft each other?

How would you like to engine-off coast interstate?

However, I would give a car the Basjoos treatment before trying to figure out some sticky frog tongue to install in front of my car.

My dad once had a big SUV tailgate him. He started speeding up, continued speeding up, and once his speeding satisfied the highway patrol, they turned on the pretty lights.

That would be a fun explanation.

"No, really, when you got close, you pushed my car!"

Being rear-ended would be... complicated.

On the other hand, anyone trying to tailgate would need to accelerate harder as they move the mass of two vehicles.

They tried that with me once. I didn't bite. Good weather, open 2-lane road. The *instant* the lights came on I put it on the side of the road. It was a very light car (Type III Notchback w/ 1776 and a 5-speed). When he walked up and asked if I knew he was behind me, I noticed his chin was quivering, as a cloud of rubber smoke rolled past.

When he asked how fast I was going, I told him I never look at my speedometer when a police car is behind me, matter of policy. (speedo reads off an undersized front tire; we go with what he says) We had a nice chat and he let me off with a warning.

To be fair and balanced, I did stumble into a radar trap after dark the same day.
