Automotive sadness

This week eBay, the online market of the kitsch and ridiculous, surpassed itself in the hawking of pure, unadulterated, automotive tatt.

Firstly a "Spooling Turbo device". The adult (adult? immature boy racer more like) version of the playing card in the bicycle spokes, this device is a glorified kettle whistle that's supposed to make your car sound like its got a turbo.

And then, to top it off, afake supercharger. Absolutely guaranteed to fool onlookers for exactly 0.25 of a second, after which it will reduce you to the status of village idiot. An absolute bargain at over $200.

Sheesh! Does anyone actually buy this stuff?

Utterly and humiliatingly shocking.

These poor bedraggled US of A specimens passing themselves off as car drivers. I mean the ve-hic-ules (as some Yanks pronounce it) seem a cross between cars from 'The Dukes of Hazard', the original 'Starsky and Hutch' series and 'Back to the Future' movies.

One of them's worth an on-the-spot fine just for the vehicule's bright red body colour.
