Burned Out Car in Lyons

By DarkLadyWolfMother - 1 September 2008 22

I haven’t seen a burned out car around here for a while and it looks like someone has taken the time to remedy that over the weekend. 

This morning there’s a burned out car at the intersection of Heysen and Devonport St in Lyons. 

There’s also a lot of broken glass from bottles around. 

I guess it was a huge party.

What’s Your opinion?

Nathan > Not a regular event thankfully. It was a bit of a surprise to find that on Sunday morning.

Of course it’s not on street view. The images for street view were taken nearly 12 months ago!

Get yer marshmallows and long sticks ready Nathan 😛

Make the most of a bad situation

Pretty sucky though as this was somneones car.

I remember when I was an apprentice chef pleb on a grand $180-ish after tax a week
I had a 2 door JL with no roof lining or carpet – basically a moving icebox/oven depending on season.

It was a junker and cost me $600 – but on the night it broke down on the way home from work I still got it towed from parkes way to giralang – for $120.

Justified by the fact that even though it did not cost me much as a car it was worth a lot more to me for what it enabled – my independence.

Pea headed individuals that torch cars do not see any value beside teh dollarof that – they do not care that it may have been a poor apprentices only mode of transport – hell that burnt out subaru may have been the only transport a single mother has to enable her independence.

A purple VN/VP Commodore was a reduced to a blackened shell on Grainger Circuit in Melba on Saturday morning. We’ve just moved there – I hope it’s not a regular event. (Or if it is, I hope we’re invited next time.)

Not a WRX, no air intake in the bonnet. Could be an Subaru Impreza, 2000 or earlier model.

Surely hk0reduck is trolling with their comment. Either that or I haven’t beemn able to locate that live-feed Google camera outside my place!

Looks like a Subaru Impreza. I think it’s sad – this was someone’s car that has been stolen and destroyed. Although the culprits will probably get away with it, it would be nice if they could be found and publicly beaten.

It was definitely a Subaru. I’m not sure of the actual model though.

The pearly king of the Isle of Dogs
Feels up children in the bogs
Down by the playing fields
Someone sets a car on fire

I guess you have to go right down
Before you understand just how
How low
How low a human being can go

Ooh, it’s a mess alright
Yes it’s Lyons

The post lives up to its name but someone should check the authenticity. Just checked on Google StreetView and there is definately no car there (http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=heysen+and+davenport+street+lyons&sll=-35.270374,149.116562&sspn=0.008024,0.017188&ie=UTF8&cd=1&ll=-35.316246,149.076319&spn=0.032076,0.06875&z=14&layer=c&cbll=-35.332323,149.070178&panoid=rcdzdaU8dYWmvcHGJ9pyNQ&cbp=1,333.3428932238042,,0,4.826606574268569).

Anyway, What kind of car is that? At the risk of looking completely clueless the rear looks like a WRX to me.

Then again I thought the car that the ADFA cadet crashed into a wall was a convertible.
