It probably was the catalytic converter. Bring in the remains and I'll sell you a Edsel I have on the show floor.

"A fire in the hole of the floor"?! What kind of SUV was it, a '41 Studebaker panel truck?!

By the way - type an hole in the floor rather than the proper usage. Apparently referring to a "hole" is connotated as an improper part of human anatomy.

Not a good month for mayors of regional hubs. First Mankato, now Austin. If I was the mayor of St. Cloud, I think I'd stay in bed for the next couple weeks.

Only hole I know of in car floors are the ones teen-agers punch to drop beer cans out of while driving if it looks like a cop will stop them.
