This isn't cool! A new SRT8 turned into a crispy critter on the assembly line! And the article make reference to this being the second Mopar to burn in a week.

I wonder what the letter they sent to the person waiting for that car said?
So does this mean all the dash plaques are now wrong and they are ### of 1,491? Man, that's gonna suck for someone.

Was it a mechanical malfunction or human error?

Apparently the gentleman who mentioned the ford mustang, has completely forgotten about the the Ford Pinto which was known to have fuel tank problems which could lead to fatalities and severe injuries. Where Ford allegedly was aware of the design flaw, refused to pay for a redesign, and decided it would be cheaper to pay off possible lawsuits.

I could see a worker being allowed a floor heater of some sort because its cold there but even then, I'm not buying a heat lamp caused the fire. The hood melted. Obviously the fire was under the hood in order for it to melt like that before personnel could extinguish it in quick order.

Yeah I'm with you. Pretty apparent that was a serious under the hood fire and the hood was closed. Don't see how a heat lamp could have started something under the hood with the hood closed.

Hmmmm....Allied gets terminated right around the time not one but two Challengers catch fire during assembly?

And, this after tens of thousands of Challengers have been built without a problem?

And, did you see the photo? That car had to burn for 10 - 15 minutes before it was extinguished. Was the entire fire fighting team 20 minutes away from the scene? No fire detectors went off? No automated fire equipment kicked in?

Ah, ya; something is definitely not right here...
