Roll On, Pops

We can do better than to honor a father with a hunk of stone somewhere never visited. In fact, taking up the idea of southern California Teo Garcia, we can drive a mobile memorial. In memory of his dad — and despite a sometimes unstable relationship — Garcia celebrates his father, Teodoro Garcia Sr., with every mile he drives. He affixed a decal with his father's dates, as well as the wish that "Peace Be With You Pops."

Garcia's brainstorm makes so much sense it is a wonder no one thought of it before. After all, how many miles per gallon can you possibly get from a marble monument?
