Follow-Through and Overlapping Action on the Web

Motion does not dissipate immediately; it tends to continue in its original direction unless arrested by friction or another opposing force. A marathon runner doesn't stop in her tracks as she crosses the finish line, for example; she comes to a staggering walk and collapses, the victory ribbon fluttering down behind her.

When opposing forces finally catch up to an object, they often overcompensate, so that the head pitched forward in a car's sudden stop snaps back before coming to rest and the car leans far forward over its tires, with its tail in the air for just a moment, and then bounces back to its normal upright position. (If the car is on old springs, it may rock on them for a while as the dust settles.)
