Looks like the engine caught on fire. The car looks to be reasonably intact so I do not think it was due to a serious accident, maybe it happened in a drive by shooting judging by the low rider rear end (unless this car had height adjustable suspension). Maybe the cheap aftermarket oil filter caught on fire (sorry couldn't resist that one). I suppose it would be useful to park in the garage to impress the neighbours:-) just got to make sure to park nose in.

Bid high, no doubt this car had its oil and other fluids
"lovingly changed out at the dealership on schedule".
Etc.

No doubt was a gasser, I very rarely see torched diesels
in the boneyard.
