    Lightbulb Bonnet Lifting

    Ive noticed this trend going on in Pattaya , now I have no idea why , but I now see many pickups with their bonnets raised up at the rear as shown in the photo, I asked a mate what he thought and he said its some thing to do with the air conditioning , but Iím not convinced .

    Any ideas

    I'm impressed that you called it a bonnet. Many are starting to call them a hood, American style.
    As long as I live ,on a car it will always be a bonnet and boot. Not a hood and a trunk.

    Same with the engine cover on the rear of buses they seem to think they'll run cooler with them open... Which I doubt would make any difference.
    Wiper blades up
    Rock behind wheel instead of applying or trusting park brake the other ones.

    We would always do it when I was younger it was because we had high rise in take manifolds and it raised the carbys hence the bonnet would need lifting.

    However I don't think that is the case with that car as it is fuel injected and has a air box at the front. Completely different set up.


    I can say it has nothing to do with the air conditioner.

    Could there be a rice cooker under the bonnet operating off engine temperature? Bonnet up enough to let steam out?

    Nah, you all got it wrong.

    It's a windscreen de-icing mod. Hot air from the engine bay melts snow or ice.

    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    You can cook a pot roast by this method on a long drive.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!
