    Well.......caught fire :D Someone was clearly unhappy about that speeding ticket :crazy: . This was one of our Scoobys until someone decided to torch it last night.

    Those are the most misleading undercover police cars!

    I got pulled over by one of these, he was quite close to my behind so i decided to floor it away from him and then i just saw the blue lights and thought (I'm sure he's pulling a prank), but he wasn't LOL :(

    Oh dear.

    Didn't know they had plastic bonnets, but that one clearly did!

    Hopefully you'll be able to add arson to the speeding charge!

    This one was fully marked, roof bars (stumps still visible) the lot!!

    All aluminium!!! That's how fierce the blaze was.

    Melted the mountings - the engine block, or what's left of it, is on the floor.:crazy:

    Well if we can't look after ourselves ;) and fret ye not - there's more :devil:
    This is rural Yorks you know - there are only farms around :D

    I assume some breakers yeard will try to sell it for about 3k under the list price for a working one going on previous recently, might be able to get a couple of wheels off of it too and maybe the bumper, I think you may be forking out for the vehicle next door for a new offside mirror

    I think the car park attendant did it to teach them a lesson about parking outside the parking bay.

    Looks like the best value you're going to get out of that one is to sell the V5 to a gang of ringers....

    x2, Its tempting to derive some sort of pleasure out of that, but remember we all paid for that car, and some c*** has trashed it. Go get 'em unmarked.

    I would be interviewing the last crew that drove it and ask if they left the deep fat fryer on! :devil: :)

    Probably the heated seat element we wouldn't want those poor piles to get cold :devil: :D

    I'm desperately trying to be sympathetic here :) :)

    I believe that the local car thieves once tried to torch the Liverpool Police helicopter, looks like they might have moved North or it was the chip fryer :)

    Regards
