PostSubject: I'm out, parts for sale!   Sat Jun 05, 2010 5:44 pm

Well guys, i hate to say it, but i wont be driving a fairmont for a while. The other day while i was out, the 2dr was having some trouble starting. heard a pop, then saw smoke. so i popped the hood, and saw flame Sad . Me and the people working where i was at, couldnt get it out even with 9 fire extinguishers. Eventually the fire department showed up to put it out. but it was already a total loss. it mustve gotten hot, because it even made it through the firewall and started burning the dash. i decided right now i just cant have a project unfortunately. i would go back to the 4dr, but its missing too many pieces. so if anyone needs some parts off either a 4dr sedan or a 2dr coupe. let me know.

That's terrible.
Does anyone have any ideas what caused the fire, or what the "pop" was?
After you recover from the shock of this, you will want to build another.

yeah, both cars have both mirrors. not sure what shape the one is on the 2dr. it was the better of the 2. ill look into it.

i dont think there is much to help. it might as well be missing everything between the fenders.

Nope, the cops/fire fighters just deemed it an electrical fire and left. one of my mechanics came to look at it and couldn't think of what could've caused it. but kept trying to get me to pull the engine and tranny out since we spent all the money on the rebuild. i still want to build one, but just cant afford it, with the baby, and unemployed girlfriend, and moving. trust me, this is not something i could just drop. i've loved the cars ever since i started driving it.

sorry for the loss, you were making some good progress. maybe you could put the engine in the other car so you'll have some transportation. the other car had the nice interior that you made.

After all that work and money, just shocking. After you get over the disappointment, an ideal car will come along at the right price. Somehow, it always seems to work that way.

Wow, thats insane. I'm sorry for your loss, you did a lot of work to that one.

I would break down and cry if that was my Zephyr.

I think I'm gonna throw up. That really sucks man, I hate to see a fellow enthusiast lose his ride. Like the other guys said, stick around, keep your chin up and another great F/Z will find it's way into your driveway.
