False Conservative Car Backs

For the best of both worlds

Generally, in my hometown, people drive one of two kinds of vehicles: 1. big black SUVs, red jeeps, or dark blue or green baby wagons, with dark windows, none of which you can see through, or 2. small white, beige, silver, grey, tan, off white, cream, or other schnoo-lite-colored cars which are lower to the ground and have relatively untinted windows that you can mostly see through. Like life, its about transparency at a fundamental level.

The two kinds of people who drive these two kinds of vehicles, drive accordingly to the way you would think that a fish swimming in a large school of other fish that looked mostly like it, but than which it was either bigger and more-un-see-through- able, or smaller and more see-through-able would swim. So people in cars that are different sizes and transparencies treat eachother like you would expect them to treat eachother based mostly on the type of car they are driving.

If you cant see around a car, you dont know when to pull out and you feel bad about and constricted by the car in front of you, and like it is driven by an authority figure. If you can see through a car you drive as if it isn't there and you feel good and supported by the car in front of you, and like it is driven by someone who is subservient to you.

You get better gas millage with the small cars.

You get more respect with the big cars.

So this is an idea for false big backs on small cars so that you can have the best of both worlds. The aerodynamics might be a little hard to work out.

       //You get more respect with the big cars// that is the flaw in this idea. Unless by "respect" you mean "pity mixed with ridicule".

       Yes, that's like the fallacy of BMW drivers in the UK. They think they are GODS OF THE ROAD!!! - but everyone else thinks they're tossers.

       In today's culture, what better measure of respect, than spite from people you didn't even notice.

       // thinks //   

       Sp. "knows".   

       BMWs are the chosen transport of pimps, cops, and drug dealers. 'nuff said.

       Quite easy actually: just put up a large spoiler on the back, hinged so it hangs down at low speed, blocking the thru vision of the person behind.
