FIRE Fire! ’68 Corvette goes down in Flames

  1. What’s worse is the shop just down from ours they are stripping down an all original 59 or 60 and turning it into a race car

    1. I have carried at least one since 1975 , Kidde 10 abc .
      $ 20 peace of mind .

    2. I would suggest a “clean agent extinguisher” over an ABC dry chem. ABC dry chem is highly corrosive and can do more damage than the fire. Clean agents such as FE36, Halon, or halotron evaporates without any residue and does not conduct electricity.

  2. Just another piece of crap that someone won’t have to waste money on to keep it running anymore

  3. FIRE EXTINGUISHER …. QUICK DISCONNECT ON BATTERY TERMINALS ! This doesn’t guarantee anything , but it sure as hell increases your odds of NOT having your car burn to the ground .

  4. Obviously a fuel pump issue. With these older cars, the mechanical fuel pump having been installed on the engine was a serious safety problem. When the pull pump fails, the car catches on fire. Had this happen on a 1974 Mercury Capri, it wasn’t a pretty site. Now you know why they put the fuel pump in the tank on today’s cars. That’s also why you see commercial semi’s on fire on the side of the freeway. Since diesel motors still have mechanical fuel pumps, it poses a serious modern day hazard. When the pump goes out the one major part that regulates the fuel pressure is gone, and there’s not much to hold the pressure back, sooo. They simply go up in flames.

Dad bought one like that to resale I was in high school. To dumb to realize I'd been cool as hell in that thing
