I shit you not, I once saw a Dodge SX2.0 with a BMW badge on the back, and all Dodge badging removed. I wanted to kick the windows in.

^^ I thought that was limited to our IT guy's truck. Sadly, it appears I'm wrong.

Hey, what's that strap that attaches to the back of a car (usually a lowered rice-burner) and drags on the ground? Is it supposed to touch the ground? I'd heard a bit about them and that they grounded the car (what - lightening strike???), but now I'm seeing them on normal cars, and they don't touch the ground. What gives?

This is a local car. Yes that is a single spinner hubcap. Yes that is a bolt-on spoiler on a trunk with a factory spoiler. Yes that is a transformers decal. Yes that says 1-1-9. In case anybody is interested: http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/cto/1051032380.html comes with boneless winshield wipers

Does that Transformers decal intentionally say "PC ICE"?

Don't ever go through a 'Little Mexico' then, you'll slit your wrists.

I've gotta say seeing a Honda with an intercooler strapped to the front, but not hooked up, was the worst so far that I can think of.

Oh, and painting the hood flat black to make people think it's carbon fiber.

its a grounding strap. supposed to dissipate static electricity or something. I used to see them in western canada all the time but not here at all. I cannot imagine them having any benefit whatsoever.

Of course they have no benefit. Unless they're styrofoam.

They actually seem to have some effect if they actually touch the ground. Living all my life in California, I never had issues with getting out of my car and getting shocked, but when I started going out to the east coast in winter, I would constantly get shocked when I'd close the car door due to static build-up from the extremely dry weather. However, I don't seem to get shocks from cars I rode in that had grounding straps, so who knows?
