That, and a million other possible scenarios, is why I never drive the car AFTER it is sold. Heartbreaking.Found this on the internet:
"Just after 1:00 PM Wednesday Afternoon, Whitehall Engine 4 was sent to Chestnut Street near MacArthur Road for a reported automobile fire.
Chief 16 went on location and signaled a working fire. Engine 4 arrived minutes later and stretched on the car fire.
The owner of the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 told Newsworking that the fire appeared to have started near the carburetor.
The car was just about to be sold to an individual that was flying in this weekend to pick it up."
Oh yeah, this is what I first did on my car - there were a lot of wires which did not belong there originally and others where cut, loosen, bad spliced together and so on...Check your fuel system, and check your eletrical.. When I bought my '73 F-350 5 years ago, the rubber fuel hose in the whole truck was spongy and ready to leak from the E-10 gas.
If I hadn't checked over the wiring on my car, it could have been a car-b-que like the video...
