You choose fast food restaurants based on which ones you can EOC through the drive-through the entire way (it is actually more efficient for me to do this at the bank because I have to reverse in to get head out parking, the drive through on the other hand I can just coast up to, do what I need to do at the ATM, and coast away.)

My little brother and I drew up a design about 2 months ago for a magnetic arm that would come out of the bumper and attach to the trailer, so you could EOC attached to a truck for however long you wanted to. The only reason we never attempted building it was due to the unknown legal ramifications of such a thing. I can't imagine they would be worth it.

I saw a car with moon disks and rear wheel skirts. I couldn't tell what kind of car it was, as it was going the opposite direction on the highway.

You feel disappointed when you have to remove ecomodded stuff from your car for warranty work.

Luckily it was just a bunch of duct tape!

...when you hope that a full diagnostic scan of your car will either explain why it drinks more Diesel than a Centurion Tank, or will reveal a fatal (in cost/repair terms) fault which means it can be sold on...

Also

...when the above reveals all is well and you curse it...

I have my Honda dealer change and store my winter and summer tires.

They put 42 PSI in the tires because they 'knew I liked that for low rolling resistance etc' even though I did not ask or discuss it. At least not this time.
YKYAEM when they KYAEM
