Sonic Drive-In

Your auto-obsessed husband takes better care of his ride than of the kids. He gives the four-wheeled beast quality time, regularly bathes his “baby,” and whips out pictures of the ride to show his friends. Meanwhile, the kids miss their daddy, run around with dirty hair, and aren’t allowed to meet dad’s car-centric buddies.

And that sound system. Dad is deaf if the kids need him, but hears every slight variation from those speakers. Oh, well, best stop trying to change him, embrace his idiosyncrasies, and tell him about the second annual Latino Car Audio Contest. The contest features three categories of bumpin’ sound systems (compacts, pickups, and SUVs) as well as live music and giveaways.
