Sad to see but very preventable, I live in the Country and in the fall when the first frost comes the Mice start looking for a home for the winter. We heavily mouse bait our Buildings interior and exterior and haven't had a problem. I learned the hard way my first car was a 1970 Chevelle SS396 Red with Black stripes numbers Matching car and I was Young and DUMB and let the mice live there for a winter. That's a smell you just cant get rid of

For a 1970 Chevelle SS, I would sure live with the smell... lol

Yikes. Thats terrible. I couldnt imagine after all the hard work that goes into a rebuild and like thats its gone


I used to keep a fire extinguisher in my old regal. Think i will again
I will have an extinguisher in my GP, maybe in the trunk. We have them in all our trucks at work. It's one of those things you hope you never need. I don't know if a fire extinguisher could have saved that car though.

That's a very effective way to rid the car of mouse nests!

Out here rabbits are a problem also, they like to chew through wiring as well. That burned up pic reminds me of walking in a field near the Throgs Neck bridge in the Bronx. among the dozens of burned out, stolen and abandoned cars were 8 Cutlasses parked in a ring noses in and burned up. Somebody had a hard on for G-body Cutlasses. Sorry for your friend's loss, hope he's got some good classic car insurance.
