I'm not a chemistry expert, but following the most recent developments, it appears that the dust that settled during the collapse was full of microscopic particles of an incendiary used to cut through steel. I'm presuming that clouds of this material may well have been active in the air and reacted to metal vehicles on the ground.
Judy Wood who is a Phd. in engineering has studied different aspects of the damage done at the WTC. She thinks a lot of the steel in the buildings was vaporized by a powerful beam weapon of some kind, but recent discoveries point to the presence of incendiary material in the WTC dust. It's just a short hop from there to thinking that the dust may have had enough kick left in it to set the cars on fire or to have some kind of very corrosive effect on them.

Molten iron certainly effects plant and animal tissue. Ask anyone who worked in a steel mill about accidents with hot metal and what it will do to things it comes in contact with.

Thermite reacts with steel. It was designed to do so.
It may not react with live tissue.

I show that it is complete nonsense that cars on FDR drive burned
a "truther" website that contains lies is a bad source of information to discover TRUTH.

So when exactly and how did they manage to obtain and paint a whole bunch of it onto the core, trusses, and columns of the WTCs without a soul noticing or the enormous costs of obtaining it?
