Thank you. She won’t be sent to the crusher. While her front end is pretty wrecked, the rest is pretty salvageable. I’m sketching up some ideas. She may end up a purist’s nightmare, but she will be hitting the road again, someday. :)
June 1, 2013. Persephone’s rear end and interior the day after the fire. The tarp over her back end was apparently flame retardant so that part is noticeably less damaged. I can’t believe that pretty interior is just gone.
Absolutely devastated. I ALMOST dragged her out of the garage a couple days ago so I am so upset with myself for trying to hide her for the upcoming hail storms.
We lost all but two vehicles and a truck we were borrowing. Hearse, Fleetline, parts cars, a few 1950’s engines, tranny, a lot of parts, storage, motorcycle, scooter ..all of our tools.
The tornados missed us but the related storms knocked a power line down on our garage. We were hiding in a friend’s basement and when the tornado passed we headed home to grab something and I saw the orange glow in the backyard and arrived just in time to see my babies burn.
