Gday all,
Recently I have heard of two cases of Great Wall dual cabs catching fire while being driven. One incident was in Ferntree Gully and my girlfriends parents seen one during the weekend near Pineapple Flat.

Has anyone else heard of this happening?

Thanks


I know we shouldn't laugh at our own jokes but I've been chuckling to myself for that one for a while.



On a serious note, I once had a liteace van, I was in heavy traffic in Melbourne when the engine started to lack power so whilst still moving I opened the bonnet ( it's a van, engine under the passenger seat ) and the main pipe from petrol pump to carbi had come off. I do not know how but, even engulfed in a fireball inside a van ( I would love to have seen the other drivers faces ) I managed to blow it out in one breath ( after switching the engine off and therefore stopping the petrol pump).

I had no srious burns but lost all my hair and eybrows,looked a bit weird for a few weeks.

Cheers Gordo'

This will take a little 'heat' of the burning Jeep stories

So Great Walls are made by Jeep? or did they just copy them?
