    I have no details. The photo may not even be real, I stole it from Facetweetagramtrist. Someone said it was today 12/5/14 on I-45 in Houston.

    There's probably a bunch of those original EHPS pump/motor units that are still running around out there, just waiting to short out... :frown2:

    Looks like someone tried to install an alarm or car stereo and FAILED!

    Looks like a Mynes tune... :(

    Bet it ran like hell, or at least the occupants did.

    Most likely a water pump failure from a failed circuit board. Excessive heat from lack of turbo cooling!

    Sad turbo mini's never should have existed!

    That isn't a turbo MINI. It's an R50 with a burning P/S pump me thinks.
