An Esprit went up in flames on Sunday as well.  Not much left of that.

I'm always amazed by just how much actually burns.  Looks like this one went up really hot.

do magnesium wheels burn? i remember from highschool chemistry days we used to burn small pieces of magnesium and you couldnt put it out, it would burn under water. i would think car wheels would probably be a slightly different alloy?
