VW 1969 in original baby blue. Re-painted in candy apple red and re-covered the seats. Took it on a road trip to Michigan. Got back to Iowa after experiencing various engine related repairs along the way. One day while driving, I heard a boom-whoosh from the rear engine compartment. Got out to open the engine compartment and had a full-blown fire raging. Must have blown a fuel-line based on the intensity.
Had enough time to rip my Marantz cassette deck out of the dash...otherwise...total loss. Engine melted. Would love to have another one.
