You might be an EcoModder if out of all of your SEMA pictures that you "lost" on your net book the only one you really wanted to find was taken less than 100 miles from home.

Your car looks like it could beat the land speed record, but it never goes over the speed limit.

YKYAEM if...
...You get excited about a chance to drive behind a bus or truck. And not because of the aero/drafting benefit, but because it gives you an excuse to drive slower and other drivers/passengers stop giving you a hard time.

you might be a REAL ecomodder when a 21:1 compression v8 diesel is perfect candidate.

When I was lurking I went through every page, laughing at just about every comment. It took me a 3-day weekend to get through it!

YKYAEM who doesnt have a car yet if...

You pulse and glide your RC car...
You look at your school bus, and say "it could do with some skirts, kammback, and grill block"...
You would prefer to get a hatchback because they're more aerodynamic than their sedan counterparts...
you make a robot car in tech class and the first thing you think of when you see moving(after the FINALLY!!! IT WORKS!!) is "could do with some aero-mods"...
You want to secretly aero-mod your sisters car, but its never around...
You accidentally stumble upon some coroplast at Menards and are more interested in it than the other things around you...
You wonder "how far down in the water would that car go if it fell in nose-first?" and think about maybe making scale-models of your car, and testing them by throwing them in a pool...

Last one is a bit of an engineer joke
You design a rocket in your head by taking the shape of a Prius, then make a cylindrical design in the outline of the Prius' profile, and add fins...
or...
You imagine strapping a rocket and wings to the aerocivic...

Yeah! Forty two pages! Givin' the Aerocivic thread a run for the money! OK, it's not on the same level as the Frankenswift thread or the Open Source Controller, but it's not bad for the Lounge! Ha ha!
