Thick black smoke looked really neat?

Re: Remember When...

I was behind a dump truck last week that was leaving a 1/2 mile long trail of really thick, black smoke. I don't think I was ever happier to finally pass someone.

Re: Remember When...

I can't remember ever thinking it looked neat.

Sometimes I like the smell, though.

Re: Remember When...

Yeah, I never thought it was cool. I always saw it as a lack of maintenance. When I was the maintenance officer at the rescue squad, I would send a vehicle in for service if it started smoking. In most instances, a new fuel filter solved the problem.
