    Look at this Gearheads Random Pictures Thread

    Just a thread for good random pictures, car-related or not, funny, surprising, striking or whatever you think others might like. These do not need to be taken by you but those are welcome too.

    A couple pictures of my last project. I went to Ft. Lauderdale to paint this. Painted area is 6'x16'. Estimated time was 30 hrs. Actual time 34 hours. It was hot as hell and I was in the sun most of the day. Did dawn til dusk Sat. & Sun.. A couple hours on Monday to finish and clean up.

    Dayum! I think they've taken this fake tuning thing just a tad too far.










    Yeah, I know it's a spoof.

    Re: Gearheads Random Pictures Thread

    An Article in the New Yorker [Engineering] yesterday about the Volkswagen Scandal, puts forward "An Engineering Theory of the Volkswagen Sandal"
    Last week Volkswagen of America C.E.O Michael Horn told a House subcommittee investigating his company's ongoing emissions scandal that it wasn't a corporate decision to cheat emissions tests by installing "defeat" software in eleven million diesel cars. Instead, Horn said, it was "a couple of software engineers."

    The article cites the sociologist Diane Vaughan described a phenomenon inside engineering organizations that she called the "normalization of deviance" to explain what led to the disintegration of the Challenger space shuttle in 1986 by the failure of the rubber o rings.

    In the interest of making a long story short at this point I will paraphrase the articles definition of "normalization of deviance:

    Engineers notice deviances from expected results from tests, then decided it wasn't sufficiently different from what they had done before to constitute a problem. They effectively declare the mildly abnormal normal, making deviant behavior acceptable, with a few lines of engine-tuning software. It starts with tweaks that optimized some aspect of diesel performance and then evolves over time: detect this, change that, optimize something else. At every step, the software changes might have seemed to be a slight "improvement" on what came before, but at no one step would it necessarily have felt like a vast, emissions-fixing conspiracy by Volkswagen engineers, or been identified by Volkswagen executives. Instead, it would have slowly and insidiously led to the development of the defeat device and its inclusion in cars that were sold to consumers

    Do videos count as pictures?

    Haley LOVES my miata, she wants to get in it every time she's outside and makes car sounds like she's driving.
