Default Many Years Ago

I had a Manager and a Supervisor come to me and suggest that you could add more power to the EFI engine by plumbing the under-hood fan motor to supply additional air to the engine under acceleration. What do you think? they said. (The fan motor would still supply air to the passenger compartment in the factory location and would be used for cooling as normal.

I said you would have no warranty issues from doing that, They were all smiles then, ...... as the people would all be dead from the CO poisoning (from exhaust leaks) passing from the engine compartment to the Passenger compartment.

A friend I worked with for many years sent me this photo today to remind me of those stupid people.

Can't Fix Stupid.
