Default What does this mean?

Someone graphed my local carwash last night:



So I use my primary search engine on the internet:

"dsm"

Found this thread:
rhttp://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=41880&highlight=dsm

I happened to be back on the street and saw this, 1/2 block away, not sure if this is related at all

Yeah, that'* a DSM...

Diamond Star Motors: A joint venture (more like bastard child) between Chrysler & Mitusbishi, spawning the likes of the Dodge Stealth/Mitsu 3000GT twins and the Plymouth Laser/Eagle Talon/Mitsubishi Eclipse (pre-2000) triplets.

I wouldn't jump to conclusions.

The DSM is also a book that lists symptoms of psychological disorders. Known as the "bible of psychology."

The "13" in that pic represents how many seconds it takes that car to go from 0 to 60mph.
