Yeah.... this is my best friend's RX-8.... his house went up ablaze a few weeks ago and here is what's left of his car... it was parked in front of his garage. his brother had a 12 second evo parked in the garage.. which is where the fire started. no known cause. but both their cars were chared (especially the evo).
the rx-8's engine compartment was completely melted and so were the side mirrors and the dashboard. i dont have anymore pictures.. but i think this explains alot.

yeah... insurance is taking care of it. he doesn't want another one though.. so insurance is paying it off for him. he's got a civic bubble that he's working on now. as for his brother.. he was able to recover a few things off the car.. (exhaust, intercooler, most piping, cams, blow off.. etc.) the evo had waaaay too much stuff in it. that thing dyno'd at 420whp and 435 torque. really sad that it was gone in a few seconds.

well, the rx-8 was taken last week to get crushed because it's waaay beyond repair. the wheels look ok in the picture, but when looked at up close in person, the front wheel was spider-webbed. i guess the heat really got to it.

this is his mother's brand new mazda 6 that was parked directly in front of the garage next to the rx-8.
what you're looking at was the engine bay which blew up.

yeah... we all did. i live a block away.. he was having dinner w/ family, all my friends were at my house waiting for him when he called me about the fire. being that we saw the fire happen and knowing it was too late to stop it was devastating. not only did they loose 3 awesome cars, but they lost half their house.
i dunno... a message to all of you to be careful.. you never know when sh*t can happen.

Damn... The important thing is that everyone is okay though. Cars can be replaced, people can't.
