    You're in Miami Beach. I don't see any art on that car. Do you at least have fluorescent lights under the frame?

    Tommorow. Just bought some for the interior (not under the frame) as well as led lights for the cup holder and Honda logo lights for under the door.

    Fluorescent lights.
    Useful as a mosquito repellent in a diving expedition.
    I thought Americans go for American muscle cars.
    If I had to get a good American one (don't know why to do that when, ehh, Ferrari), I would get this one:

    I like the second picture. Those blue speakers are pretty cool. The first one...well, that just seems like it wouldn't have good sound quality with the hatch closed, and with the hatch open, you'd quickly turn your car into a bird bath.

    Taken separately, those two sentences are weird. Taken together...they're even more weird. Fluorescent lights repel mosquitoes? You have mosquitoes on a diving expedition? As far as I know, only the larvae live under water, they don't bite, and they only live in water too shallow for diving. Does Greece have some special mosquitoes?

    I never really know with him...or me. Seems like he probably meant "driving" rather than "diving", but either way, I've never heard of mosquitoes being attracted or repelled by lights. A few decades back, people had those bug zappers, which were based on black lights, but they didn't do a thing against mosquitoes. One study showed that such a light killed two in a year, which means that two were dumb enough to run into the thing by chance.

    Curious - when you do that to a car you increase your insurance rates pretty spectacularly, right?

    I'm not generally a fan of the whole "Pimp my Ride" thing but that one is soooo over the top it's sublime. Or divine, if you'd rather.

    Re: I Bought a New Car...

    My objection to the swan wing car is that it didn't go quite far enough. I guess you probably couldn't put a giant swan head on the hood, as that would seriously impact visibility, but perhaps on the roof, unless that's a convertible.

    Well, if you did that, you'd really HAVE to change the horn sound, too.

    I've always wanted to do that. Hit the horn and watch people levitate right out of their cars.

    I dunno. Might prompt some drivers to get out and come banging on your window challenging you to a pushups contest.

    No, they seem pretty clearly endothermic, based on all the heat they produce.

    Excellent point and hard to refute without accepting the warm-blooded dinosaur hypothesis. But that seems to be mainstream for now anyway. At least among those who haven't decided dinos are all fakes or misinterpretations of other things or something.

    Dinosaurs are fake. Its a collection of bones from numerous species that died together to make it look like a reptile

    Looks like a Tesla or an Audi or a Jag or a... ad infinitum and ad nauseum.

    Gone are the days when you could tell the make of a car by seeing them.

    It's blue, though. That's getting rare, too. Most cars are now on the gray scale.

    I just wish we could go back to larger windows for road visibility and drop the encroachment of video as a replacement. Even outside rear-view mirrors are being replaced.

    Re: I Bought a New Car...

    My favorite was Subaru impreza STI , the old model, with the non round back. I was rasing money for that one and then they went about and decided to fk it up and make it look like a Volkswagen .
    So now since I had to revenge this bs by them, I own a Volkswagen
    That of course I won't ever do again since I'm incline in boycott any German products I can. So no Bimmer or Merc for me ( the company parking is filled with them anyhow, so won't make a difference).... Maybe a Porsche, if, err, if you can persuade me and lent me one , ehh, a 911, 2020 model, do anyone here will persuade me and lend me one, for 4-5 years ??

    I believe "pinks" is the only valid wager for illegal street racing. I know because Danny Zuko said so.

    On a related note, I did a track day a couple of weeks ago and got to drive an Ariel Atom. The wind changed and my face is stuck round the back of head.
