Wed­ding fleet wrecked in fire

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

An en­tire fleet of clas­sics was wiped out when a fire dev­as­tated a wed­ding car busi­ness back in Fe­bru­ary.

Ten cars, in­clud­ing a 1962 Rolls-Royce Sil­ver Cloud and a 1950 Bent­ley, were de­stroyed when the blaze ripped through the premises of Clas­sic Wed­ding Cars Peter­bor­ough. Owner Melvin Dolby was taken to hospi­tal with a sus­pected heart attack and wife Sue suf­fered from the ef­fects of smoke in­hala­tion fol­low­ing the fire on the night of 8 Fe­bru­ary.

Since then the com­pany has been run­ning with a fleet of six clas­sics, and Melvin and Sue have fo­cused on re­pair­ing their house, which was also dam­aged in the blaze. They’re also plan­ning on set­ting up garages for the cars in the new year.
