Don't think it was really on fire but the story was funny.

FWIW, My Mom was good friends with a Prof at Cal-Tech. Same social circle as my Aunt, n Uncles. I do not know what he drove. He had a super cool shady compound in Pasadena, which at that time was filled with huge old awesome even mansion type houses everywhere. I remember it had a circular tower that the sides would open up, like an open patio with a roof. Damn near across the street from Cal-Tech.

Used to ride our Sting Rays down and watch demolitions alll over um, several cities. Ah, peruse premises. Slide down banisters and across 3rd floor ballroom floors in sock feet.
No,,, no,, sure don't know how any any of that heavy equipment ever got started. Ever. Especially the crane. shocked
We used to play in the train yards in east LA too. But not on or around the trains. That's dangerous.
Ya know, sometimes, safety policy and procedures just really do need review...

IDK if this is the same guy, I think I remember the guy had invented that old kinda like a fax machine where the phone receiver handset is placed down in the machine and a mugshot picture comes out.
It was in the awesome Steve McQueen movie, Bullitt. Or various other unknown cop movies.

Daddy...?? shocked lol Just kidding!! grin Semper Fidelis Gentlemen. G'day!

Wow. Thanks Shaggy! That is very very cool. They say everybody can be replaced. So So So not true...

IDK, could be same guy we knew, cool guy, Cal-Tech kids loved him, kool-aid house at my mom's house.
Bobby and Jan had a '40's Chevy Sub Panel. Betcha that's rare now. Good kids. We left Pasadena in 1969....

Shaggy, I just registered after buying a B250 camper. Been a fan of Feynman since the Challenger incident commission. Feynman's Messenger Lectures are also truly remarquable as I'm sure you must know. It's really cool that you brought him up. One of the most brilliant, unique minds of the 20th century. Cheers
