BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT , The squirrel

This car couldn’t go over 40mph because a squirrel had filled the engine with nuts


The squirrel had been squeezing himself into the air filter to stash his nuts....

Mechanics trying to find out why a car couldn’t go above 40mph were more than a little surprised to find that the engine was filled with nuts, stashed there by a squirrel.

The elderly driver, from Poole Keynes in the Cotswolds, took her Honda Civic to the local garage when she found it was unable to drive at more than 40mph.

After a complete series of tests, mechanics lifted the bonnet and discovered that every space and opening had been filled – with nuts.

‘It was rammed solid with nuts,’ said David Evans, who owns the garage.

‘I’ve been doing this job for 18 years and I’ve never seen anything like it. I couldn’t believe it.

‘(The animal) had been getting into the garage, where she parked the car, and had been climbing right inside the engine bay and squeezing himself into the air filter.’
