Pickup trucks customized to spew black smoke into the air are quickly becoming the newest weapon in the culture wars.
"Coal Rollers" are diesel trucks modified with chimneys and equipment that can force extra fuel into the engine causing dark black smoke to pour out of the chimney stacks. These modifications are not new, but as Slate's Dave Weigel pointed out on Thursday, "rolling coal" has begun to take on a political dimension with pickup drivers increasingly viewing their smokestacks as a form of protest against environmentalists and Obama administration emissions regulations.
Last month, Vocativ noted many coal rollers focus their fumes on "nature nuffies," or people who drive hybrids, and "rice burners," or Japanese-made cars.

Conservatives Are Purposely Making Their Cars Spew Black Smoke To Protest Obama And Environmentalists
I only wish I could have Mooch and Barry’s faces the target of the smoke! Cough cough!
Isn’t black smoke from a diesel merely a byproduct of steppin on the go pedal?
Just burn an old tire on Earth Day...it’s easier.
To the point of making a car disappear in the smoke? Nope!
This is pretty hard to believe. Sounds like the stuff of urban legend. Would somebody REALLY spend the money to do this?
See the videos at the linky.
I’d rather have an after burner for tailgate huggers.
This Thread Topic outlived its usefulness yesterday. Dupe...
HuffPo has a story on it.
Never seen it before. Oh well.
That’s what they do in south africa. Different purpose but still smokey. May trade the Hemi in for a coal fired motorized truck. Of course I’ll have to hire a stoker. ;>}
Conservatives? The ones around here doing that are white trash that just want to be as obnoxious as the ghetto boom-boom car drivers. If you asked them if they were protesting anything they wouldn’t know what you were talking about.
You can purchase fuel management software that will make a diesel pickup blow black smoke in quantities that would make a steam engine blush.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
“Of course Ill have to hire a stoker.”
Naw! Just marry one! “Stoke that coal, and make me a sammich!”
The writer really does not know what he is talking bout. He talks about cars spew black smoke. Then he talks about modified truck with chimneys?
