Good job Kat and J. Andersen. I got it pretty quickly too, though when I met the owners of the car they told me that not many people do.

Sorry. I couldn't get it. Perhaps that's because in my accent (British) we say 'tyuner'[tju:nər] with a 'y' sound inserted, so the number 2 didn't help me.

Virtual Linguist - Thank /ju/ for trying.

Pino Tuner? as in a filipino tuner (car)?

Piano tuner. Although I was also turning over Pino Tuner, like a vintner.
Very cute. I bet that the owners loved that you got it.
