No idea. It hasn't moved all week.

Fireman says there was something on the dash that started it or magnified sunlight, but that's bollocks cos there was nuffin there.

So its a mystery. Maybe just a dodgy taped up join on an electrical cable melting with the heat and making contact with something.

Managed to salvage the Dark Side of the Moon, Bill Withers and Killers CD's but the wife's Body Rockers and Take That CD's are toast.

Every cloud has a silver lining

Nothing to do with the map lights in the ceiling was it?

My daughter was playing in my Jeep & switched them on; when I came back to the car three hours later they were so hot you couldn't touch them. Surprised my headlining never went up in flames.
