Every so often, we see an advertisement for a car burned so crispy that we have to wonder what happened. Today’s object of musing was this 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.

As you can see from the Copart ad, the Jeep was definitely used as a quail rig once upon a time. But because of some unknown disaster, it was burned and its near-unrecognizable remains were sent to the junkyard.


The ad doesn’t say what happened to the Jeep, so we’re totally in the dark about what actually went down here. Some causes I’m mulling over are:

  • Barbecue gone bad
  • Improper gasoline storage
  • Lightning strike

That last one has a one-in-a-million chance of happening, but who knows? Maybe it was a particularly unlucky Jeep.

What do you think happened?
