Not the brightest idea.
We're not really sure why the driver of this Protégé thought that it would be a good idea to take a smoke-billowing vehicle out on the open road. He was obviously going to attract a lot of the wrong sort of attention. Better yet, we also can't figure out why he decided to run from the police once they noticed him. He was probably going to get pulled over anyway because of the massive plumes of smoke coming from his engine. There's also no chance he could have hidden the vehicle with such a massive bonfire under the hood.
Then again, maybe he thought that the smoke would act as a screen and that the police would never find him. Whatever the case may be, here's a prime example of how to get the cops to chase your vehicle down with minimum effort.
