That's interesting. Mine completely vaporized.

Could set a dangerous precedent. Do ants have standing to sue in the UK?

This feels like the beginning of a Dr. Who episode.

The ABA editors are using the same misleading headline as the rest of the media. The car did not melt. Some plastic trim and parts on the car melted. Big difference.

Also the designer of the building has a track record since he did a previous building with similar solar problems. You think he would learn.

@4: Also, even if the issue "goes away" in a few weeks as the sun's track through the sky shifts as Winter approaches, the problem will be annually recurring unless the real issue (shape and reflectance of the building) is addressed.

Thank you, Fred. I was wondering about cars melting from excessive sunlight.
