    I thought I had better get a fire extinguisher in the single seater and there is no room to put it so I made some oak brackets and mounted it to the steering column.
    Show me where u put your extinguisher. 0B73596D-08D7-4796-B139-06608DD06760.jpeg C5A09F23-AE93-473B-A876-212250D66A54.jpeg D3CF5805-CBF6-494D-B5D1-55B0F6F8A7E5.jpeg

    As a retired firefighter I'm telling you that if you don't have one you're a fool.

    I carry one as well. In all my old cars. I’m thinking of upgrading them all to larger ones soon.

    I’d rather have too much than not enough!!!!

    I always carry one. My daily driver has it behind the drivers seat, easy to grab. Even though the Comet is not finished yet I just bought a new Hal Guard for it, it will be mounted between the seats on the tunnel. I have at least a dozen of them in the shop, every wall has one, the machine room has two, the storage room has one also. I also have a smoke alarm hard wired to the alarm system.

  20. I carry a large commercial fire extinguisher in both cars, I started carrying a big fire extinguisher after Randy's roadster caught fire sitting in bumper to bumper traffic, his small on board extinguisher ran out before the fire did resulted in a lot of unnecessary damage, had it not been for a young man at a service station seeing everything playing out and grab the commercial unit from the service bay and had the fire out before the car was a total loss.

  21. Yessir, one in each vehicle. On the floor in front of the driver and not in the trunk.

    Yes. Where you can grab it as a driver, in a panic. Powder.

    Makes a godawful mess but less of one than fire does.

    I'll get you out of a pinch but if it wants to burn bad, it's gonna burn and if you can use it to make sure everybody gets out safely, then at a distance it can burn. At the end of the day it's metal and memories, sweat and tears but it's only a car and that can be replaced. You can't say that of life.


    Edit: Can you tell I have a few good friends who are firefighters?
