Phil asking "what's that ugly car?" lead to my musing about the most underappreciated automotive engineers. The guys who made the cabin quiet on the Lexus[Wiki] with gold rims and shaking windows cruising the 'hood. The folks who tune the suspension on a Cadillac[Wiki]. I don't know why I'm exposing myself as this horrible stereotyper except that I felt like I needed a bit of an intro to this fascinating article on the culture of "Sideshows" in Oakland.
