Bush­fire fore­cast

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

The

dev­as­tat­ing fires in the Ade­laide Hills ear­lier this sum­mer de­stroyed homes, sheds, live­stock and the dreams of many res­i­dents. It was re­ported that sev­eral clas­sic cars were also dam­aged.

This dra­matic front page pho­to­graph from Ade­laide’s Sun­day Mail news­pa­per (Jan­uary 4 edi­tion) shows what was left of an FJ Holden, part Alex Dem­chenko’s col­lec­tion from Hum­bug Scrub. Dem­chenko said he was bit­terly dis­ap­pointed to lose his house and six cars but was thank­ful his wife, son and fox ter­rier, Tessa, had all sur­vived.

Bush­fires are a big worry for own­ers of clas­sic cars in ru­ral ar­eas, as sci­en­tists warn that fire events will in­crease in the fore­see­able fu­ture.
