So the worst day so far has just happend i lost my supra forever it cought on fire and now it's going to a auto wrecker, so the story is i was on my way home from sacramento going to reno and as i was halfway home i started to smell some burnt pineneedles and so i thought it was the trees all around me well then i looked in my rear view and saw smoke trailing behind me so i pulled over and looked i saw the smoke coming from the top of my bumper but inside the car so i thought well maybe i ran something over and it him my exhaust and i get back in and leave then i was just coming into reno and the rear started to smoke really bad so i get off the next exit and look and look cant see anything but smoke then i realized my car is on fire somewhere but i couldent see the flame untill it started to come out the side molding and the top of the bumper it metlted the bupmer and i kicked it down to throw something on it and it had already got to the fuel line and there it went i sat there and watched my most fav car i have ever owned the car i got my first speeding ticket in burn up right in front of me. this has been the saddest day ever for me and yesterday my memorial day went to my supra. here are some pics. R.I.P.

I feel for you man, I got to literally watch my first car (mint Iroc with an ls1) burn in my drive way because my dad wanted to take it to the store and had a seizure about 20 feet from parking it.

Insurance going to help you out here?

I have just one question and i hate to be that guy but why did you keep driving and not do a full inspection after you saw smoke coming from your car ?

My dad insisted on borrowing my car, had a seizure while driving it down my driveway and hit a tree. Some how that resulted in a fire. I have no idea how the fire happened exactly as there wasn't much left to investigate. But between being held at the rev limit for minutes and the damage from the collision something got hot and hit the fuel line.
