Usually we do not take particular notice on where we park our cars, so long as it is a valid spot and we are reasonably sure we won’t get tickets for it. However, there are times where we should be more careful on choosing a parking spot, and here are two instances that illustrate the point very well.

Kancil Squashed by Trailer outside factory
Perodua Kancil reduced to metal sheet

The first collage of pictures shows a Perodua Kancil being reduced to a sheet of metal not higher than 2 feet. Apperantly this happened outside a factory in Penang. A semi-trailer fell over the unsuspecting Kancil that was parked next to it. Luckily no one was hurt, it is not clear if insurance covers such incidents.

Satria hit by fallen tree
Proton Satria hit by fallen tree

Parking under a tree gives you shade, if you can put up with the occasional bird droppings. However, during a thunderstorm, this tree snapped under the strong wind and came down upon the Proton Satria that was parked directly underneath it. Luckily the car only sustained minor damages on the hood and side fender.

So, think again when you park your car, and make sure you pull the handbrake too!

There is this Perodua Kembara that is always parked nearby my housing area on weekdays. Since the current new number plate is WPH and this car is a WPE, with the average of 3 weeks per new alphabet, by crude calculation this car is at least two months old…. and it still has the plastic wrap covering all of the back seat and the head rests of the front seats.

I can only imagine how annoying it is to be a passenger in the car. With our hot and humid condition, getting into this car means having your skin sweat and stick to the plastic, and don’t even get me started on the irritating noise generated by the plastic sheets against your body. I wouldn’t able to stand this for a single ride, let alone for months.

Some people are beyond comprehension. Lets see how long he keeps this up.

GReddy e-manage

From the official site at, GReddy e-manage is described as:

e-Manage is an inexpensive programmable fuel management system that allows you to properly tune your factory fuel system without having to change the entire factory ECU system to an expensive “stand-alone” unit. The e-Manage system is a universal “piggy-back” type unit which taps into most Japanese factory ECU wiring, by utilizing the existing sensors…

but the English description of the Japanese performance product says otherwise. Take a look at the close up.

another classic translation job by the GReddy team

Verbatim from the box:
“GReddy e-manage” is excellent in the generality and the expansion. And it is a low price further. Therefore, you can direct an engine too economy, easily. The dealer of the product of GReddy of the whole country supports “e-manage”. Then, you are relieved, and you can choose it. Future tuning begins first from “e”.

It’s amazing how company who make such great performance parts can come up with such classic writings. I’m sure Paul is very happy with this unit.
