Dude, Or Douchebag: Sport Transport

Doesn’t it seem especially cruel, it being the first week of March, for me to show you cars with surfboards, bikes and other outdoor sporting goods, just rubbing in the fact that for us, winter is just a summer with a sweatshirt?  If makes you feel any better, I took most of these shots in late December.
