Gives me more fun on the morning commute...more than the morning radio.

I've always been tailgated with my civic too. Even before I drove at the speed-limit. I think people just dislike teal Hondas, since the same thing happened with my teal Integra...

Ah well. I'm starting to care less and less about the other annoying drivers. I usually just think to myself, "that person can afford to waste gas, I can't."

I can't wait to get one of those MPG stickers for my back window along with a gassavers one. Should at least send the tailgaters a message!

Oh I think it's even more fun when you get to stop behind them on a long light anyway. Then you can just sit there smiling into their mirror.

As an update, I never had anyone mad at me while driving 55MPH in a 60 for 24 miles to work for 7 months. But driving 55 in my Saturn I had someone give me the finger in less than 3 weeks.

I think this just adds to the consensus of it does matter what your car looks like.
