And yes – that really is Amy’s old Mercedes on fire in our driveway.  Oops.

    Wow! I hope everyone is all right!

  • bfeld

    Yup – we are.  This was from a few years ago.  Amy showed extreme courage by getting in the car after the fire had started (smoke only), turning the car on, and backing it away from the house and the two other cars it was parked between.  By the time she got out, the fire had really gotten started.

    Man, if this is how parties at your place *usually* end, I'm not going to the right parties…

  • steve_bergs2127

    Maybe that wasn't courage . . .

    Getting into a burning car?

  • bfeld

    Hah!  Only the parties in my mind.

  • bfeld

    Irrational courage!

    Fuel injector leak.

  • Nathan Rodriguez

    What a loss ! Hope that insurance contract was in order.

  • bfeld

    That’s a longer and very frustrating story that has a happy ending nine months later.

  • Griffin Boyce

    WOW! =O How did that manage to catch fire?

  • bfeld

    It turns out it was a fuel injector leak.  Pretty scary stuff.
