Nah, that's OK. Leave it. I was bored and it's going to rain this weekend here in Texas. I can't wait to see what Fiat brings to the U.S. now that they have part of Chrysler.

I generally like it when designers get "out of the box". But geez, that one is hard to take.

Looks like it hit the back of a tractor trailer.

I was driving a country road in south carolina years ago.. Had to pull over to unload some "processed" coffee. On the shoulder where I stopped was a burned patch in the grass. Hmm, car fire. In the debris was something that caught my eye. A chunk of metal spelling out "DMC". Still have it somewhere.

What's the chances of that???
