Parents Gmc caught on fire. (pics)

It was a 95 AWD and lived a good life.

I hope the insurance gives them at least a couple of grand.

thats interesting. i have heard of a couple of these catching fire due to the fuel lines. if it was sitting for a short period of time the fuel lines were probably still pressurized. these run at over 60psi

nope it was stone cold for hours, was still cold out, so it was plugged in.
good thing the neighbs called it was close to the house.

oddly its the 2nd thing to randomly burst into flames there! few years back the power junction box or whatever, blew up & caught fire! the flames were creeping up the power lines towards the house & the neighb's .

so 911 is called (2,3am) and it just rings & rings & rings no one answered!...eventually the fire dept was called direct. a MP was written too over that one
