    That must have been a great place to see, glad nobody got hurt, hope things can be rebuilt or replaced. Bob

    Another piece of history gone..
    Sad for sure :(
     
  6. So sad. A shop fire is my worst fear.
     
  7. Never had a shop fire but did have a fire in our office building in 2001. Total loss. Building, equipment, records, family artifacts, memories - all lost.
    Changes your life and breaks your heart.

    Don't know Mr. Stoke but best of luck to him and his family...
     
  8. very sad. i upgraded my simply safe alarm system with a smoke detector. if there is a entry or fire the police or fire department is automatically called. both situations are a big concern of mine. for 20 dollars a month it could save precious minutes. they almost pay for themselves with the discount on the insurance.
     
  9. Man...talk about something that sucks, thats awful.

    Oh, that sucks.
     
  11. Really a shame. His shop is about a mile from me so went by this morning. Red barn looked ok, but probably some damage due to heat/water.
    Such a tragedy

    Absolute tragedy! No loss of life or injury is a bonus.

    I've been out of town for a week and was truly saddened to read this post! 'Fred's All American Old Car Day' is an iconic annual event that is a joy to attend and his ranch is really neat to see while traveling down Old Redwood Hwy. I believe the car show is scheduled for next week and knowing Fred, it'll probably still go on! Here's a couple of pics that I snapped in 2014.

    I think we have gone every year I can remember. Here are some pics of his place, what was there before the fire, and example of how much joy his shows brought to gear heads and families like mine...
