OK, you might be right. Please describe though what he's doing in a race. I assume that:

1. He grips the steering wheel.
2. He depresses the brake.
3. He presses on the gas pedal.
4.a. He enjoys the view
or
4.b. He prays to God
or
4.c. What else?

Wagons can look SICK if done up right. They have some of the best show potential.

i agree. wagons would look great if done the right way. but yeah, u pretty much got it. let off the break and hit the gas and hold on for a great ride. just embarasses the guy even more when he knows its an auto. o well. i dont care if its not a manual. does the job for me.
