Saw this on the road last week

I meant to post this last week. As he passed me on the drivers side and went around another truck and got over, I just had to get another look


you can see that it has aero wheel covers and what looked like lawn edging or a rubber strip across the bottom from the front wheels to the back wheels

i saw something sumular the other day as well - did not have my Cell handy to snap a pic.
But there was additional edging along the bottom of the fuel tanks and what looked to be inserts in the wheels - not quite that flat - but the bolts were covered better. THe trailer was a moving trailer so it was pretty low on the sides already.

Made me think "Hey - some one else gets it"

That's pretty neat. The other day on the way up to school I was passed by someone in a tercel without a passenger side mirror and it made me happy.
