HOUSTON - The sign above Mike Linsky’s garage reads:  “What happens in the garage stays in the garage.”  In fact, it doesn’t always stay there.  Sometimes it just comes out a little bit differently.

“Well, it looks like we have a Texans car,” Linsky said.

It’s more like a Texans shrine on wheels, completely covered from front to back with assorted Texans stickers and “bling bling,” as well as specially fitted flags.

It all started with a roll of Texans duct tape Linsky fashioned into a racing stripe on the hood of his Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

“I got a reaction from a Mustang that wanted to race,” said Linsky.  “I rolled down the window and said, ‘It’s a hybrid, so that’s not going to work, chief,’ and then I added on from there.”

He also added a couple of passengers: the family dog, Suzy and a skeleton named by a fellow Texans fan.

“Sam Houston has come out of the grave to watch the Texans have a great season,” Linsky said.

“Honestly, I think he’s crazy,” said Linsky’s wife, Laura. “It’s something he’s enjoying doing I guess.”

He must.  This isn’t just the car Linsky drives to games. It’s the car he drives everywhere.
