You hate people running up behind you on the highway, because now you have to speed up to the speedlimit! You look for right turn pockets along the highway to smoothly cruise into and let the speedy folks pass, then merge back into the travel lane. Being patriotic, you admire the flag, and for what it tells you about the headwind situation! ; )

But only if the flag is on a stationary pole. If it's on a vehicle that doesn't belong to the Ambassador, it's a horrible waste of fuel.

  • Dual football pennants on the C-pillar bad
  • Raccoon tails on dual trolling rods good

YKYAEM when the clue for 5-down reminds you of an EcoModder member's car, which received much modding back when EM was just young...

...your wife doesn't give you crap for bringing home another car - she knows you didn't spend much on it -instead, she just rolls her eyes and rhetorically asks "Another one?"
