The hacker's vehicle

In the Jargon File's Appendix B, A Portrait of J. Random Hacker, under Miscellaneous, it's noted that "Many [hackers] drive incredibly decrepit heaps and forget to wash them; richer ones drive spiffy Porsches and RX-7s and then forget to have them washed."

Well, it's not a Porsche or an RX-7, but here's a picture of this hacker's car...note the ham radio callsign plates and the XM Satellite Radio antenna. Unfortunately, the sticker in the back window doesn't show up real well.

Yes, I did have it washed later that day. The temperature stayed above freezing for a while, and there was a long line at the car wash.
