    Default 2 of my friends' cars caught on fire.

    yesterday was pretty interesting... in the same day 2 of my friends cars' cought on fire, both while their mom was driving them. one was an early 90's volvo 740 that had been t-boned a bit and i guess the fuel line musta bumped loose cause it sprayed fuel over the engine and lit it on fire while my friends mom drove it back from groceries, the other was a Mazda MPV which my friends mom drove over a mattress on the road and it got stuck in the engine and the engine made the mattress catch fire which made the car catch fire... yeah.

    quite a coincidence eh?

    I had a friend with a GSX that blew his engine and his car caught fire somehow. The car was stolen, so he just left it in the middle of the street. Serves him right.

    Hehe! I was merging up from 11th ave onto Crowchild north on ramp a few years ago and this truck had a mattress sitting on the bed. When he accelerated to merge onto Crowchild, the mattress slipped down and onto the road. This car couldn't stop in time and then ran over it. The pickup truck continued for another 100m before realizing he lost his load.

    I just wondering how she could run over a mattress, what size was it?

    Because a Queen/King size is hard to miss!!!

    I bet she wishes it was a waterbed!!!!
