    Exhaust can and some exhaust pieces might be salvageable. 10 bucks... ;)

    I'd gold plate it and display it in the living room..

    Mmm ... Fire Service suggested that I call AAA and tell them "... my car won't start."

    House fire. Car was in garage. No one home, no one injured.

    Henry I am so glad to hear that you and family are ok. A house fire is pretty darn scary. Hope all gets worked out. Best wishes

    You might be able to salvage the parking space it is currently consuming. ;)

    Going to cost you more to get rid of it than any parts may be worth by looking at the pictures, IMHO

    Was it the McLean house fire? Nevertheless, so unfortunate.

    Perhaps steel engine and tranny internals such as gears.
    They would need to be hardness tested.

    That would be the fire suppressant.
