I just had to show this to everyone. It is just so ridiculous to me that I am not even going to explain what it is for a few days. Take a guess and leave your thoughts in the comments.
Update Aug 22, 2011; I guess I should have left this up as the primary post for a few days given the response (1). Anyways this is a home made brake light switch. The driver’s is supposed to leave the hook that I am holding, sitting on the passenger front seat. When approaching a stop, the driver picks up the hook and placed it on the hanger loop mounted below the A/C controls. The sad part of the story is that it had a faulty stoplight switch which is inexpensive and easy to change. Not nearly as difficult as hooking up this contraption.
