My dad was in the Australian army during WW2 and tells a story about Balikpapan. He was in intelligenge and part of his duties were instructing the troops about booby traps and such. Apparently they must have been listening because on this basis a lovely '36 LaSalle Coupe was left harmlessly sitting in a street, keys in the ignition, for about a week until one day a soldier jumped in, started it up and drove away, no problems, no explosions!
