    Sad to see. I had a 95 Camaro that caught fire like this one. Smelled something burning at the first stop sign I came to after leaving the house. Turned around, popped the hood when I got home and there was a small fire burning on top of the intake. Put it out and ended up replacing some of the wiring harness. Drove it for several years after and really never found out what caused it. Never cared for the salad shooter wheels….

    What a shame for this classic muscle car to catch on fire.

    @Paul – this sounds like a story we need to hear. It’s a shame this one was destroyed. Looked in pretty good shape
