It looks as though Dick Van Dyke had himself a pretty nice car — until the new Jaguar burned to a crisp alongside the 101 freeway in Calabasas, Calif., earlier this week.

As we reported previously, Van Dyke, 87, was rescued from his burning Jaguar by a passer-by. Now the TV legend, who was unharmed in the incident, is joking about it.

Van Dyke tweeted a photo of the burned-up car (see below), along with the message: "Used Jag for sale REAL CHEAP!!"

TMZ.com reports that Van Dyke also posted a limerick about the incident. Here it is:

"I once drove a car that could fly
I had never driven so high
But, I recently found
Even back on the ground
U still can be left high and dry"

Here’s a video that has surfaced showing the roadside drama up close:
