VIET NAM - This car is associated with one of the most enduring images of the war. In June of 1963, Buddhist monk, Thich Quang Duc,
drove this particular car into Saigon, got out, poured gasoline all over himself and burned himself to death to protest the government of
South Viet Nam. Photos of this human bonfire blazed across television screens and newspapers around the world. Quang Duc's act also
affected leftist Americans who later immolated themselves to protest the war. On May 31, 1966, a group of students and Buddhist youths
burned down the U.S. consulate in Hue, Viet Nam.
