Man they doused that car in tire glaze. I'm sure the ICM and coil packs REALLY love it. Idiots..

That may be engine detailer. It'* non-conductive, and leaves a nice durable dirt-resistant finsish after it bakes on

That'* John'* car, cloth interior and all. And now we see what it would look like with a spoiler

I like the white...and was really kinda looking for one (although I only spent 1/2 day looking...lol) It just looks so freakin sharp... Green is too common....ribbit ribbit

But there'* no way you could convince me on the bubble butt being a better look. It'* less efficient!

Same way that little spoiler on the tailgate of my truck does. It actually helps gas mileage the way it disrupts the airflow over the vehicle.

GM did the windtunnel tests to prove it all out... I'm actually serious on this one.

i think that is because of more downforce on the drive wheels increasing effiency? bonneie=fwd, and trucks=rwd

The definition of SPOILER is that it SPOILS the air so that the car isn't pulling away from suction. Aerodynamics. It would generally be worse on car like a Bonneville without a spoiler than it would on a car like a Volvo.

I doubt it makes enough of a difference to be able to prove, though. There is no downforce/upforce function in it by design.
