Australian man tries to turn car into a convertible, blows it up

Local man Darren Hopkins recently celebrated his 36th birthday and his friends decided he deserved a convertible car as a gift. Though it was late in the night, the birthday boy and his band of merry men set off to make some modifications to his existing four-wheel drive vehicle, the NT News reported.

In an attempt to create a stylish convertible, the men took turns at cutting off the roof with an oxyacetylene cutter (basically an open flame that can cut metal).

Giving up after getting bored, the group headed back inside to continue the celebrations, and Hopkins believes there must've been a few embers left in the backseat they didn't put out. Before they knew it, the car's wires had melted and it started by itself, heading down the street while aflame.

The partygoers weren't phased, and continued to celebrate well into the following afternoon.

Despite the seriousness of the situation, Hopkins was pretty pleased with the way the whole thing turned out. "I thought it was hilarious — it’s my big-ass birthday candle," he told NT News, "I just couldn’t blow it out, I had to call the fire brigade."

Local police understandably weren't pleased, but Duty Superintendent Louise Jorgensen said in a statement emailed to Mashable Australia there won't be any charges laid. "Unfortunately there is no criminal charge for destroying your own property," she said.

"...or for stupidity," she added, to the NT News.
