1. Saw this the other day

 

it seems his plan was a destroy some dude's car with one explosion, which would lure the dude out of his house. He then planned to blow up the house while it was empty.

Hardly a terrorist act in the normal definition of the word. More of a straight up case of revenge for something....

2. It looks like they are investigating it as a possible act of terrorism,

but it won't be classified as such unless they find a political or ideological motive. If the guy just wanted to cause an explosion as an act of personal revenge or some such thing, it's not terrorism as that's normally defined.
