Unfortunately, the exact details of the story behind the sad demise of this car are unknown. The pictures came to me with the below story which may or may not be right. I checked snoops.com and they had nothing on it. Regardless of the circumstance, it is sad to see a nice car go up in smoke.
Some Dude’ in Massachusetts just finished this 1938 Plymouth on Friday A pril 29th 2011. Saturday A pril 30th.2011 was to be a shakedown drive of about 50 miles just to see how it would run…
While driving along and the left rear wheel came off…the car dropped and the gas tank was punctured…the rest, as they say, is history.
He said all 5 lug nuts had come off and the studs were stripped on the updated 1990 Explorer rear end.
All 3 of the following pictures were taken on Saturday A pril 30 2011, “within an hour +/ -”….
This “W A S” A Beautiful Car! ! !
And the outcome was….. Those all to famous Last Words, Aww I don’t need no insurance , I’m only going down the road…!!!
