This is of course an outrageous statement, but I loved it when I saw it spray-painted on the wall of a motor museum in the Netherlands.  Ridiculously macho approach, breezily dismissive of working with the power of physics to add speed.  No, you work with the power of power to overcome air resistance.

‘Aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines.’
