Car Burning Season in Gowanus & Park Slope

Looks like Gowanus and Park Slope are having issues with, uh, cars being torched. These photos were sent to us by a tipster who wrote:

I live on Sixth St, btwn 3rd and 4th Ave, Gowanus. I came home around midnight on Friday night.... when I went for a morning stroll on Saturday, I came across not one but two burned out cars on Sixth St, one on my block, the other between 4th and 5th Ave. Both cars looked like they were fairly new. Anti-preppy terrorismo or what? I wonder what the f*** it's all about. It's stinky and freaky looking....Apparently, there was another torching last night. A couple more and it will start looking like Red Hook.
