What the heck is that?

— they’ve used more than 3 rolls of high quality duct tape to hold it together.

— its rear deck holds more than 112 troll dolls.

— their vanity plates read ‘MYBABY’ or any variant thereof.

— its interior upholstery, body paint, mud flaps, and wheel covers are all color-coordinated to the same champagne tint of the driver’s shoes, wardrobe, handbag and dyed hair.

— they’ve spent more than one year’s rent on its sound system.

— it possesses fuzzy dice, an astrological window decal and a hood scoop.

— there are more than 63 obscure band decals affixed to visor, hood, roof, quarter panels, bumpers, seat backs, etc.

— it is a seafoam green hybrid with a bike rack, four national park stickers and a Sierra Club decal.

— it features any 3 of the following: a spoiler, pace car markings, naked lady mud flaps, a pirate flag, the number of Dale Earnhardt’s car, a bong, a firearm of any make or caliber, and any bumper stickers containing profanity, drug references, whiskey brands, misogynistic messages or any combination thereof.

— it has knitted doilies for headrest covers.
