I was shooting some buildings around Madison Ave in the 20’s Tuesday (just before the snowpocalypse of 2010 hit) when I noticed this red minivan parked illegally. Specifically, what caught my eye was not the car itself, but rather the weird wire coming out of the rear window, running into the gas tank, coming back out of the gas tank, and finally attached to a bizarre axle on the tire. What the heck is this for?
While I know very little about cars, I can only assume this unusual device is directly attached to the flux capacitor, and helps transition the car into a gentler time warp once it hits 88mph. But, on the off chance this is wrong…
What’s going on here??
PS – In a weird coincidence, I swear I saw either this very red minivan or an identical one with the same rear left tire get-up later that very day while crossing the Williamsburg bridge . It was then that I realized I had to know what the new trend was.
