Logan, that was funny (...more non-functional).
an adjustable wing, gyod, I wish I had not seen that thing.

My boss, a 40 something year old man, has a Cavilier, late 90'*
It is purple, small, and he has one of those silver spoilers on it.
The thing looks like a big grocery cart.

I am thinking, "Yeah boss, you are gonna get a lot of tail in THAT thing."

They are a bit more sophisticated and stylish, these wings are just plain retarded.

I don't know alot about areodynamics (like how to spell it for starters) but I thought those types of spoilers worked at really high speeds(By all means corrrect me if I'm wrong, I'd like to know) If that is the case then it'* kind of cool to be able to keep it down so it looks a little less ridiculous when your just tooling around town or something. Granted the majority of people with those god ugly things don't ever drive fast enough to need that type of down force.

But I would never, want something as fugly as that on any car I was in

except that the porsches, crossfires, corrados, and every other car that comes with one stock, the angle of the spoiler changes to increase downforce, these ricer spoilers dont even do that, if those pictures are accurate it just goes up and down, no change in angle means no change in performance

that would make sense, would mean big waste of money
