regular reader Vin spotted this strange phenominuum in Acton yesterday. it’s a tie attached to a car. or perhaps it’s a road kill’s tie and the poor victim is stuck up there under the bonnet (or ‘hood’ if you are phoning the site from the New World)

it reminds me of those funny anti-static rubber dangling things that were popular on cars in the late 70s. did they ever work ?
we need to work together to find a car with such a device on the road in these modern times. if you see one, take a photo and email it to me
