Could have been worse. Country Classic Cars


Fire began Tuesday evening around 8:00 pm. 150 cars burned, about one quarter of the inventory. No one hurt.

Yes, I read that on the Route66News blog. Been there several times. It's a shame. Not all was "show quality", but lots of nice drivers and projects.

Thanks. I love Ron's blog. I've been reading it for many years now. It's my morning paper. It's a trip I'd like to make in my '77 Chrysler some day, if I ever get it finished.

Hemmings covered it too.

Wow, that's just sad. Glad it was not worse and no one was hurt.

Shame, but as said above it is a good thing no one was hurt.
