    MacGyver could easily make a Neutron Bomb from a Mercedes, gasoline, hairspray, a hank of hair, a piece of bone, a bobby pin, a  zippo lighter flint, 5 golden rings and a photo of Prince William.

    Easy!

    and Jack Bauer couldn't find him in 49 hours.

    I intend to live forever - so far, so good.

      That was a dead give away to me.  Careless of these terrorists to leave behind such clear evidence of their evil intentions.

      You don't want to make light of things like this.  Car bombs are lethally destructive and even this kluge job might have hurt passers-by. And this might have been a real effort.  On the other hand, it might be much ado about nothing.

      I would imagine that if you stopped a hundred vehicles at random in my Seattle neighborhood, you could pull a full gas can, a pound of nails, a propane tank and a cell phone out of the trunks of 20 or 25 of them.
