Dodge Viper Burned At The Stake... Again?

Remember the Dodge Viper with "666" license plates which burned to a crisp? The UK's Daily Mail just caught the story... two years after we ran it. But, hey, the pictures are pretty epic.

The fire happened way back in 2007 in Kostroma, Russia, when a group of devout religious types took offense to the "666" mark of the beast license plate and set it on fire. We enjoyed the story when it first came out, and still think it's pretty amusing, though we're sad to see a Viper get it over something so silly. Perhaps Daily Mail should read Jalopnik more often.
