I live in Grimshaw St. where this a**hole lit a huge tree on fire. The Commodore was indeed deep purple with large aftermarket wheels. It was also a V8. I hope someone knows this person, ahem, scumbag. I thought it was odd that a random car was sitting in the street watching a tree burn at 1230am. they sat and watched for several minutes and then backed down the street and tore off at a rate of knots… apparently going to light their next fire.
