Tell me this is just a bidding war!!!! in Buick - General Posted October 6, 2008 Oh NO WAY don't get me wrong I can't STAND the smell of smoke. I wish he didnt, he started while he was out at UTI training to be a big bad diesel tech. He's trying to quit I guess, so he says anyway. But I pushed it in let it heat up brought it outside the car quickly enough for him to light up. I don't really know though, the classic old car smell this thing has is POTENT, I wonder if anything could really overpower it!
