Three of my Four Corvairs might not make it through the day

#pipelinefire started by a homeless person burning his toilet paper.

Three of my Corvairs are garaged at our second home adjacent to the fire. If you are the praying type, please pray for everyone's property and for the safety of the people working this fire. It's not looking good...

The blue turbo convertible is safe in Phoenix.

Clockwise from top right:

My dad's 65 Corsa 140 with added AC. Bought new in August 1965. Dad passed May 2020.

My dads 65 Corsa 140 convertible with power top and tinted glass.

My 1965 Corsa turbo coupe. I bought this in high school in 1979. Restored to seniors division at 2002 Corsa National. Driven very little since.

Hey guys,

The fire came very close. I really thought this one was going to get us. The previous major fire (6 weeks ago) hit just north of here and this one was positioned to bear straight down on us, based on origination location and wind direction.

The quick action of the few firefighters available to get on this fire (50 mph winds make burning move FAST) really save the house and Corvairs. Heroes!

Anyways, flash flooding will be the next hurdle as our annual "monsoon" has will is forecast to arrive soon and runoff does not slow down on scorched mountain slopes!

Cheers, Mike

Good News!!! I believe you're inside the rectangle.

Some folks just north of you were not so fortunate.

I met a couple of guys a few weeks ago who parachute into these fires to help fight them. Amazing what they are willing to do.

It sounds like the Firefighters did their jobs well....

An appropriate token of ones appreciation might be offered as a generous monetary donation to those departments involved along with a sincere letter of thanks...JMO
