Here I sit broken hearted. Paid a dime and? Ok, so I’m not really suffering from a bathroom wall related incident. I’m just a tired old fat guy who is sore from taking yet another header during a kid’s hockey practice. Last week, I think I chipped an elbow, so today when I went down I kept my arms out of the way. Big mistake! All 270 pounds of me landed on my right ass cheek! Needless to say, I’m a hurtin’ unit. Fortunately for the CoW, I can still read some great posts and my fingers still work. We’ve got a couple of newcomers this week and Jeff Fisher has been working overtime, so crack open a cold one, strap in and get ready for yet another quick lap around the auto blogs.
First up we have a general rant from Jeff at DrivingEnthusiast about the nastiness that is the fake air vent or hood scoop. This style vs. function debate has been raging as long as I can remember, and it’s not just on performance cars. A neighbour dropped by yesterday to check out the 08 Focus in the driveway yesterday and the first thing he commented on were the odd looking chrome faux vents in the fenders. Dumb.
