I remember driving west on I-80 in Iowa back in 1974 around 11:00 PM.  Off in the distance, straight ahead of me was this orange glow in the sky.  It grew pretty bright, then faded somewhat.  About 10 minutes later, I came upon what had once been one of the GMC motor homes with only the wheels and frame rails still in tact, everything else was just still burning on the pavement or had burned out.  The two occupants, along with other passer-by's were standing on the shoulder just watching it as the Highway Patrol and a fire pumper were just pulling up.  Amazing how quickly and completely that thing burned.

Funny how we remember things like that...in June of 1997, I was in the process of moving from Michigan to Colorado, was driving west on I-80 in Nebraska around 1:00 am...saw an orange glow in the sky...came upon a late 80s Caprice burning underneath an overpass... little to no traffic, no one around, no police or fire truck to be seen....
