    That is so gay (not that there's anything wrong with that!) ;D

      Yeah, that's ugly.

      Hypermiling would be a fun hobby to try. Not that I care about saving precious fossil fuels all that terribly much, but the technical/engineering would be a challenge. Really, what's the difference between shaving tenth off your ET and figuring out a way to gain another mile per gallon?

        Credit due to the guy for squeezing every last mile, but stand that ugly f**ker on it's nose and it looks like a Pontiac Firefly is coming out of it's cocoon...

          I don't think it'd be that hard to parallel park, those cars are so small that a couple extra feet on the back makes them just as long as a normal sized car.
          I tried hypermiling once, I didn't get the numbers I hoped, probably because I wasn't willing to go to the lengths those guys do.

            I like the crutches. Think the guy broke his legs when he rearended a semi on a wet road because he was running 75psi in his rollerskate tires and couldn't stop? Hipermilling is a great way to get yourself out of the gene pool.

              If this dude was hardcore, he'd chop the top 6 inches.

                I believe it has been said once by someone that modern day cars are more aerodynamic if they would drive backwards all the time.

                If you turn around the drivetrain, or heck, just weld 2 of those heaps together back to back, you've achieved the same I would think.

                  I took my 55 out for a joyride yesterday after seeing this picture, so I've cancelled out any fuel savings he's been able to achieve
