    what were you doing driving your car without insurance?

    sucks it burned but that was way better then getting your car impounded or going to jail for no insurance

    way to many people on this board drive with no insurance....

    bummer. My mom's old Camry did that one time. She literally was just down the road and caught a ride home quickly. I drove down real quick and the alloys in the front were melting. Not unlike you, the only thing I could tell her was,

    "well mom, the good news is that you finally get a new car."

    I'm curious to know how it happened... Obviously there must have been a sudden short. It's not like you wired the car incorrectly and melted it.

    The starter solenoid had to short or something. Fuses didn't blow? Look into this situation some more before giving up the ghost on it.
