I run no extinguisher in the Regal. If it burns, it burns.

Why would u even attempt to put it out?

If my car was on fire I wouldn't wanted it saved or able to be fixed. Thats what insurance is for.

Don't just let it burn, I mean I guess I can see it if you have a W-body, but every other 3800 platform doesn't suck balls.

1st of all sucks to owe money on a Wbody LOL

After having my regal burn down in front of my garage like 2 months after I got home from Afghanistan in 2010 I wasn't even mad.

Actually I was happy the polished gen5 and IS3 cam was still in the garage on a shelf!!

Poor Jasper Green Regal GS I do miss that car though!

442 will get full fire suppression. talk about doubling the odds

2 3800 fires ive dealt with back in the day were quite nice, both were totalled/paid and one fella paid me to get a junkyard engine harness/front vc, and paid the shop to install it, i believe we hit him for a total of 1k, he was paid out 7500 at the time and bought the car back for close to 1500 iirc

red GP with a dark red spot near the middle of the hood dude was still driving it at least a year later.

getting paid 5k to keep a fire extinguisher in the car and catch it soon enough....

Every 3800 platform sucks balls in some way.

Not sure about that one. EVERY person I know that had a car totaled out made out very well.

H-body is no different really in my book. Just a larger boat with a plastic front end.

H-body is a solid chassis to work with. You say boat, I say seats I can sit in comfortably. Only a FWD hater has a legit complaint against an L67 H body car.
