So you want to do your part and help the world be a better, cleaner place. Your conscience is riding on your for contributing to global warming each time you crank over your gas-guzzler. You want to do the right thing, but you're just not willing to give up your beautiful car in the name of saving a few emissions. Forgive yourself for putting materialism before humanitarianism, because now you can have both. That's right, you can still zoom around town in a hot ride, there's no rule that says they have to look geeky.
