When you are out of town and stop for a bite to eat and you find out that the person in line with you has been the one passing, stopping , then passing you again on the freeway.

They call your car the "jaws" car .

You notice a dirt pattern on the rear door of your car. You think "aha - aero effects" and carefully study this pattern for about 10 minutes.

Then you check on the other side - no pattern.

You then check again and re-study it, creating theories as to why it could only be on one side.

Finally you remember - that is the door A junior takes his school bags out of and he

a) never uses the handle to close the door and
b) had Art this afternoon and didn't wash his hands

...and breathe.

when for tiredness reasons you let your sister in law to drive you car. You have to train her how to drive a stick shift.

While on a 70 mph freeway she pulls 44.8% over epa while driving 5 over.

Aero mods for the win!

After a blizzard you carefully create the perfect bodyshape on your snow covered car, and your neighbors!
