At Least It Wasn't Mine

So, apparently, a car and fire don't mix. Who knew?




Lesson #348: Do not - I repeat - DO NOT leave your windows down on the 4th of July.

So the story is this: A little before midnight on Sunday night, we were at Friend A's house. Friend B leaves to go pick up his car, which is parked about a block away at his parent's house. Friend B comes running back yelling that his car is on fire, so we all jump in AMBF's car to go check it out. I was not at all expecting to see 12-foot flames surrounding the car. It was totally decimated. Unbelievable. My first car fire! I just wish it had been some abandoned car instead of a good friend's. And no, he did not have full coverage insurance, so he's out a car.

That sucks.

Good thing you had a camera. At least your friend will have the pictures to look back on. It's no car, but it's something.

Did someone at least bring some marshmallows? ;)

Sorry, just a joke, bummer about the car. I'd definitely be freaking out.

That may be the greatest 7/4 happening yet. I've been involved with a grass fire and burned down an old shed, but never a car. Classic.

How positive is the car owner that this was not arson?

HOLY SHIT! Never seen anything like that in real life. I still don't get exactly how it started. Or no one really knows???

Posting twice - one last thing. Damaged vehicles scare the shit out of me.
Ones that have been in accidents and all, they just look so scary - the pic on the bottom right. Yikes.

Crap sucks for them :( I had a good friend once that had a prestine MG convertible. Late one night, someone cherry-bombed it. Up in flames. No insurance. No more car. Bummer.

At least you get to see fireworks. The city I live in (if you want to call it a city) doesn’t allow fireworks at all. Even during the 4th of July! Still, I feel bad for that car owner. Hope they had full coverage insurance.

Damn, that sucks. Is your city bike/pedestrian friendly, looks like your friend might need some walking shoes for a while.
