This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

The pink Beetle
My mate, Keith we shall call him, for that was his name, had a metallic pink Beetle. A proper Beetle, none of this tarted-up Golf nonsense. We went out in the Beetle to pick up his mate Neil. Neil got in the back, and sat down, and off we went for a drive.

"Guys, there's a hot smell" says Neil. "Yeah, it's an aircooled engine, it does smell a bit hot, it's okay" replied Keith.

"No, really guys, it's quite hot-smelling back here" and indeed I could smell it too in the front.

"Guys, uh, the back seat's on fire..."

Turns out that the battery is under the back seat, and is supposed to have a bit of cardboard over it. Guess who left the cardboard off "because it got in the way", allowing the metal seat springs to short across the battery terminals?
