I actually like that because my wife collects, uh, old German memorabilita.

Hey, what's up with selling your car? I thought you were in the process of screwing it up by lowering and tubbing it or something?

I like it but at first glance it looked like the Eagle was holding a swastika. It definately looks like something out of WWII Germany.
