    Yes very sad, I live not all that far away from there and I was just there 2 weekends ago with my daughter, granddaughter and son in law. If memory is correct the building I saw that was destroyed on the local news  then I believe only the jet was destroyed.  As luck would have it that is the car my son in law wanted to buy and he was going back there this weekend.

    And I don't mean just the Jet was destroyed but I believe it to be the only Hudson to be destroyed as the rest as I recall were in other buildings and /or outside farther away

    Don't put more than one old car in a building.

    Sad day for Country Classic Cars!  Don't know what caused this huge loss of vintage cars, but perhaps all it took was one electrical short from a frayed wire of one car to initiate the blaze.   One reason why it's a good idea to have a battery disconnect switch on your antique car every time you park it for a while.
