    The following images I took on my cell phone they were blowing up the last three clunkers of about 220 cars we took in. They had the hood of a M.B. 300 series propped open with a stick when it let loose the hood slammed shut and the engine got on fire. They were unable to open the hood they emptied the three fire extinguishers they had out there on it to no avail. They came running back to the shop to get more extinguishers I ask them did any one call 911 and yes fire was on it’s way. I told them wait for fire and stay back by this time two cars were already involved and with the clunkers packed in there like sardines this could get ugly quick. All in all nine cars were involved it turned into a nice training drill for fire. [​IMG]

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Nice pics by the way! But sorry I don't understand, they were going to blow them up? With what, black cats or something?

    Think just the engines... just got done looking at what they were doing to a land cruiser in another thread... They drained the oil and then poured some stuff in the engine and ran it until it wouldn't run anymore. the video showed the engine smoking alot as it was running.

    Idiots. Don't sell them for scrap or parts. Instead, ruin them and dump them in a landfill. Way to go green retards.

    They get sold to junkyards if they want them. If they dont, the vehicles are turned to recyclers for metal/plastic/etc. They don't get dumped in a landfill.
