Well, now, again picking up where I left off last week . . . .
Finally, after four worksite interruptions, we arrived at the in-laws’ house in Mississippi, right at two hours later than I had planned, thanks to the zippers.
As soon as dinner was finished, I collected the reports from Sharon and the kids and set about recording their tabulations.
The results on a total of 112 zippers (and do recall that we weren’t doing research at the first worksite):
51 (45%) were sports cars, of which 24 were red, 17 black, 8 silver.
29 (26%) were pickups, of which 19 (66%) were Chevrolets—no matter their color.
15 (13%)were family sedans.
10 (9%)were small SUVs or mini-vans.
7 (6%) were full-size SUVs.
74 (66%) were driven by young white males.
12 (11%) were driven by young white females.
11 (10%) were driven by older white males.
3 (3%) were driven by young black males.
3 (3%) were driven by older white females.
2 (2%) were driven by young oriental males.
2 (2%) were driven by Hispanic males.
5 (4%) were unidentifiable, for whatever reason.
Next, I broke the pickup drivers down as follows:
22 (78%) were driven by young white males
13 (45%) were driven by young white COB (caps on backwards) males.
The sports car drivers:
38 (75%) were driven by young white males.
11 (22%) were driven by young white COB males.
OK, my real interest was to establish some sort of profile for these young white males, since they represented well over half the zipper body count, but this required considerably more research.
I wrote down the tag numbers w/state of all the young white males. Then I had a friend of mine back in Texas run the plates for me and find the phone numbers of all the owners. I don’t know how he did it, but he had some web site he could go to that...
