Burning Car Candle

Atypyk's description of the Burning Car Candle they peddle is pretty sparse. In fact, the only thing the vendor really says about it is "Have fun! (French tradition)." Which I find somewhat baffling because: 1) Many feelings come to mind when I envision lighting a car on fire, but I'm not sure "fun" really does any of them justice. 2) What exactly is the French tradition here? Burning car candles? Burning cars themselves (they are a feisty bunch, after all)? Or having fun? I almost hope it's the latter, because I could use a good laugh this afternoon. I mean, if having fun is a French tradition, then being warm and friendly must be a Russian one. And showing tolerance a German trait. Sobriety for the Irish, dwarfism for the Swedes, dental hygiene for the Brits, physical fitness for the Americans....

Anyway, if you want to have fun and light a waxen car on fire and somehow revel in French tradition, I've got a pretty cool-looking candle for you. Measurments are 7" x 2.8" x 2".
