Burned Cars

Burning cars in France has become the second national sport just behind football (soccer to you Americans out there). Over the past few years the numbers are running between 40 to 45000 cars burned annually. That's alot of arson cases, but the authors are rarely caught anyway. This is a typical result, note the lack of tires on the rims, the missing window glass, the seats gone, the paint texture unattainable by any other means than baptism of fire... just another sign of the strange times we live in these days. Moral of story : don't park your car on the street at night in France... it might get torched... or worse... it might get tanned !
