Thank you for your business.
first of all, fire own3d you.

next, sorry...

and lastly, congrats on the possible new car... :thumbsup:


Wrong Whole!
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....


Thank you for your business.
wait so was I the first person you told??? I feel special. Will tells me his adventures with the hate of God. :)

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.
