Post a car related photo that you took (not lifted from somewhere else) that makes you go ‘hmm’. :arrow: No text, just photos.

Just so I understand what should make me go 'hmm', what exactly in the pic you posted is supposed to make me go 'hmm'? That not one of the cars is actually in the pic despite they could be if the camera were held right? eBay style?

Nope. Didn't catch any of that.

Is this the C&C Music Factory thread?

The object as I understand is to post automotive pictures that confuse you, whether it be a comedy bodge, surreal, or something that just isn't right.

Nothing whatsoever in the photo above is confusing me in any way imaginable.
So no, I don't get it. The most likely reason is that I'm probably too thick, as usual.

Shhh...I don't think we are meant to be talking...

Anyway I have stared at it for what seems like 3 minutes and my only conclusion is that somebody at John Lewis drives a dirty shitty Vectra and they shouldn't....Or something. Maybe we will all feel stupid when we find out.....

Is it that the Vectra is covered in dirt whilst the Deafener is spotless?

As I get it, that blackening on the Vectra is basically coal.

Some twat's turned the boost up too high on the turbodiesel lump, and it's clagging to fuck as a(n intentonal?) result, coating the back of the car in unburnt particulate.

The eponymous 'hmm' is a sarcastic 'I wonder what he's done'. Knowing the wob mentality for the most part, and its petrol leanings, I see why it might pass over some heads.

My old Disco did that. I turned the boost up to improve the mix and that cured it....


Well I actually turned the boost way up and then fiddles with the pump. Get it smoking and turn it down a tad is best way to do it.
As always the biggest improvements in driveability came from turning up off boost fuelling and turning the pin.
