A Mans life work and passion, gone. I feel sick just looking at the pictures. Shit, it's painful to look at.

For those of you on Facebook find Jason Graham of Nashville, he's just seen his workshop and 9 Hot Rods go up in flames.

I tried to put a link here but you then get asked to log in, so a link is pointless

that is a shit thing to happen.

then on the bright side (if there is one) atleast they weren't glass bodied.
I hope I'm wrong, but the fire still wrecks the bodies though doesn't it? That guy has lost more than most of us would ever hope to have. I think that fire is the worst possible way to lose a car. :shake:

i know it sounds corny , but where i have been on light duties at work i have been carrying out risk assessments , i myself like so many of you have a space where we work on cars , i never leave enough time to tidy up because building is always more important right !
when i was off work i decided to have a proper sort out ,
1 , get yourself a metal cabinet and store those flamables in it period , grinder sparks can travel a long way in the air glowing red waiting to land on something and start afire.
2. i have 10 fire extiguishers in the work shop .
3. keep you exit clear .
4. if it goes up quick by now you would have nothing to lose ,i would cut the pipes on my argonuniversal/ argon and open them and leave the building , you never know the welding gas may suffocate the fire , just dont go into the building as if the flames go out means thereis no air to breathe.
5. keep that mobile charged up, when i smashed my wrist up my mobile battery was dead,had to drive to my bros
i watch a car burn to dust in five minutes from starting
6. know the address of your workshop , on a farm down a lane is not going to get the fire brigade there
7. have a fire blankett or two . very handy for covering a seat ect
8.

whilst its no consolation to the owner, the car below also suffered the same fate just after it was built.

This picture was taken a year later after it was rebuilt, again.
Cars can be rebuilt, much better that no lives were lost
