Don't cook and drive

Someone has built a sweet car into a warped kind of camper with just a match and a little propane.

The smell of propane had to be overwhelming, but I guess some of us old folks don't smell so good any more.

It would be interesting to know how the insurance company handles it.

I should be handled like any other total. Most insurance covers stupidity, (unless they can prove you did it on purpose).

Saw that earlier today. Just about every body panel you can see is f'd-up. Have to think there was some loss of hair for the occupants.

How long before they lawyer-up, claiming there were no warning labels stating not to leave the propane gas valve open in a car?

One of the many disadvantages of smoking is that it kills your sense of smell. A double whammy here.....of sorts.

And none on the cigarette pack warning them not to light up in said car with said gas valve open. Because duh.

You gotta love natural selection.
