The stupidest-looking thing

Today, on the way to pick C up from daycare, I was stuck in traffic (OK, we have two streets in town, but about 430 they get really busy) behind a big black pickup truck with a spoiler on the tail. The airfoil rose about 8 inches from the big plastic lockable bed cover (you know, the one that makes pickup trucks useless for about 80% of what they might otherwise be uniquely good at) and looked even more like a carrying handle than the ones you see on various underpowered little sporty sedans. Oy.

Oh, and silver flames on the tailgate and the mud flaps. In the canonical categorization of boy trucks, girl trucks and old man trucks I have no idea where this might fit.
