Bummer, my Xterra SC burnt to the ground.

So I'm at work chillin' and I get a call from my wife. She says "don't panic everyones ok." so I panic. She starts to tell me that after she filled the gas tank down the street from our house and is driving away she smells something funny. She pulls over and see's sparks from under the hood on the drivers side (relay pod) and some smoke. She gets our 4 month old daughter out of the car and grabs the diaper bag. She gets about 150 ft away and wwwWWWOOOSSSHHHHhhhhh!!!! The whole car was engulfed in flames. Our local fire dept. responded in under ten minutes, car was a total loss. I have to go tomorrow and meet the adjuster at the lot it was towed too. Crazy.


Thank god everyone is ok.

Oh yeah, anyone sellin a focus for under $7500???
