As avid car enthusiasts, this video is quite difficult to watch without having that knotting feeling in our stomachs. We join in on this unfortunate situation as a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro show car is ablaze inside of a trailer.
Even though the owner’s criticism of the fire department at the beginning seems a bit harsh, we can feel their pain as all they’re able to do is stand by and watch their pride and joy burns away in a ball of fire.Check out the video below if you think you’re up to it! Hopefully this guy has full coverage on this show ride and is able to restore it back to a quality finish!
A witness driving behind the trailer said that the owner noticed possible smoke, but thought it was road dust at first, somewhere between Vail Avenue and Walnut/Ridge Avenue on westbound Northwest Highway. When the driver smelled smoke, he stopped and saw heavier white smoke coming out of the trailer. The back door of the trailer was open when firefighters arrived. The vehicle became fully-involved with flames as firefighters connected to the hydrant and charged the line. The fire was extinguished within about five minutes.
No injuries were reported. The Chevy Camaro was being transported home to Palatine after it was on display at the Maine East High School Charity Car Show Does your insurance cover your classic when being transported?
