Up in Smoke

We've lost one of our SLK's. This happened a little over a month ago. I was told the fire started around the catalytic converter... She went up in flames within acouple of minutes...

WoW! Sorry to hear it. A similar thing happened to a friend a few years back, he parked on a grassy area near a park and the grass ignited below the hot cat and that was all she wrote.

Yeah, you definitely want to be careful parking over grass in any car nowadays because of the potential fire damage.
