A Dodge Challenger was struck down far before its time at the Brampton, Ontario factory—bursting into flames right in the final stages on the assembly line.

The fire was caused by a heat lamp that had ignited some paperwork that was attached to the car. Nobody was injured and no other cars were counted as casualties, as the sprinkler system quickly put it out. "Things happen from time to time," said Ardis Snow, CAW unit chairperson at the plant. "They need to determine if it was human error or product related."

The photos leaked onto the Moparts forum where some believe that this was a rare 392 SRT model, noting the wheels and the hood scoop. "Fires happen all the time in the automotive industry," said Snow. Clearly, the folks at Chrysler are adjusting well to the foibles of Italian ownership.

I heard from a very trusting source inside the plant that the fire was caused by a heat lamp that was placed to close to some fresh markings from a grease pen. The evidence clearly pointed out that excessive paint was used from the pen, and that in the charred remains you could see the burnt markings of B.B. with a smiley face. They are currently trying to track down the individual who made the unapproved markings so that they can take corrective action.








Every once in a while ya just gotta take a shot. LOL. Hopefully you get a laugh outta this.

So does that now mean every IE 392 car is xx out of 1099?
Yes, i would say that this incident just made out cars about...say, $76 more valuable. lmao

On a side note, poor IE. It didn't even get to live yet. :(

I noticed a BB with a smiley face on the last 09 I installed a supercharger on. It was on the ABS motor.

I just can't see how a car with everyone around could flame up so hot to do that much damage. I know once they get going, that's it. I wonder where the heat lamp was? Outside or in?

I dunno, considering it was at the factory I'd figure they'd make one more... maybe even salvage some parts :D
