For six long hours on the night of February 20 firefighters in Auburn, Nebraska battled a blaze which destroyed at least 2 dozen cars at dealership Auburn Auto, many of them classics.AutoLiabilitySubrogationExcess & Surplus Lines
And while those rides were either scorched or crushed as the building came apart in the inferno, not all were lost.
Roger Henderson was grateful his 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible was moved out of the building before it was destroyed along with the other cars.
He told local reporters the Olds has considerable sentimental value since he’s owned it for 45 years and drove it to elope with his wife.
That seems to be the only truly happy story of the incident since many other vehicles now either need a full restoration or are a complete loss.
