    Default Car caught fire today

    I just went out to my car during my morning coffee break, and arrived to see firefighters that had just put out the fire. They said something with my kill switch wiring had set it off somehow and now I am going to have to explain to my insurance company why there was a kill switch in there.

    Needless to say, I won't be making April's event.

    For theft deterrence, of course.

    This is a HUGE bummer, though, man, really sorry to hear about it.
