Well it's a sad sad day for me. I took the car out for a trip to Reynolds GA on the stock wheels to see how much of a difference my 20s out back were making
About half way there going down a back road country highway I smell something burning and immediately pull over. Right away I see black soot coming from my left hood louver so I jump out of the car to see wtf is going on. That's when I see flames... I went to go pop the hood and try to put it out but it was already hot in there and I decided to back away and not let billowing smoke turn into a fireball by opening the hood.
I called 911 as I ran to the nearest house trying to get a location of where I was on the highway, and literally in a matter of a couple minutes... It was up in flames.
First guy on scene jumped out with a fire extinguisher and it didn't do a thing, and by the time the fire truck got there (8-10 min later) the car was gone...
I'm glad nothing exploded or got crazy and I was easily able to pull over and get out before it got out of control.
I'm not sure what started it, but I've had to tighten the power steering cap more than once as it would loosen up and leak a little. I'm just spit ballin here but honestly I have no clue what did it.
