    collector cars in California fire

    This is my home. So I should be good then, huh?
  2. I like the fender skirts, and the way the tail lights are done and the trunk sort of tapered on the 51 Fords. It's just the opposite of big fins.

    How about a foolproof rooftop sprinkler system? As it is now it's required to have a sprinkler in the ceiling of your kitchen in case you start a grease fire on your stove; but that does no help when embers land on top of your roof.

    It looks like everything along Mulholland Highway burned and that's where that collection was, on Mulholland apparently. https://google.org/crisismap/google.com/2018-Woolsey-fire

    A stick is far preferable to an automatic. I don't even buy automatics.

    I think this may be it: It would be near Hazleton, Pennsylvania. Would that make sense?

    You might find that Johnnie's Garage by searching newspaper archives because they place many classified ads, and you have the name and phone number (9055) and the year could be 1935+/- and the area NE Pennsylvania.

    collector cars in California fire

    Typical Paradise homes. In the foothills I think you'd call it. Rather wooded; plenty of fuel for a fire. Seems it could have been another wind and powerline situation. An electrical outage was reported just prior to the discovery of a fire, so it may have been a tree branch hitting a powerline.
