Today's posting is about something that's been bugging me for a long time. The rear deck spoiler.
If you feel the urge to argue in favor of the rear deck spoiler, I offer these two photos into evidence. You tell me, which looks more bad-ass, the tail fins on the Caddy or the wing on the PT Cruiser? Both might be stupid, but the fins were way cooler. I rest my case.
That last line of the clip, I just had to throw in there. The phrase "The Greatest Generation" comes from a book by TV anchorman Tom Brokaw about the generation of Americans who grew up in the depression and fought in WWII. My parents were part of that generation, and not everything they did was so great. I haven't read his book, but I doubt Tom devoted many pages to their tacit acceptance of the racist norms of those times. It's shocking to me that there are still many people alive today who remember those "good old days" when "the colored" like Tiger Woods weren't allowed to play in PGA tournaments.
Just for the record, I refused to let my Saturn dealer put a spoiler on my Ion sedan. I've seen Gallardos with and without rear wings, and I much prefer without. Keep that in mind if you're thinking of buying me a Gallardo.
