Just joined about 10 days ago, from Wisconsin. Purchased my first SSR - 2004 Ultra violet with 8000 miles on it beautiful car had it about a year and a half, had some work done at a very reputable speed shop and there was a problem!

The engine compartment started on fire and spread to the cab during a test drive. I will say during this unfortunate incident the speed shop has been great to work with.

Couldnt go very long without a truck so located another and just purchased it. Changed colors, maybe a mistake.

@marshall038, Welcome from Forney Texas. Consider clicking on the Colored Letter/Picture, top far right corner, go down to "Account Settings", click, and fill in your information. Especially your LOCATION and the year of your SSR, like the rest of us. Then go the the left side and click on "Signature". Also put the year of your SSR in your "Signature", and anything else you want to show in your posts, and we can help you better if you have a problem. When you finish click the "SAVE" box.

I know really struggled not going back to Ultra Violet! Loved that truck found it with 8055 miles on it. Lost it at 9450 miles (just looked at my paperwork) I was afraid that I wouldn’t find another one that would compare, so changed colors.

No offense to the UV, but ricochet is where it’s at!!!! Just kidding. Any idea what actually started it all? I once had some long tubes installed on a smokin asphalt that almost literally became that. The installer forgot to adjust the power steering hose away from the header, with flaming results!
