This sucks! I hate seeing any classic car get destroyed. I still dont know why some people dont keep a fire extinguisher in there vintage/classic/exotic cars.

Driving a mid engine Italian supercar without a fire extinguisher is asking for trouble. I recall Jay Leno telling a story about driving his Miura, smelling raw fuel, looking back, and seeing it spraying on the rear windscreen. Add that mid engine heat disbursement (or lack thereof), and here we are.

Apparently this idiot didn't value as highly as we would. Suicide mission?

Probably. On the other hand, once there's a fuel fire, do you still want the car? Best to get away from it and call Lloyds.
