Country Classic Cars owner Russ Noel reflects on the damage to his 20-year-old family business after Tuesday night’s fire destroyed about 150 cars worth millions of dollars. Investigators have not yet identified the cause of the fire. Video by Morgan Timms here
You can see how upset he is, but he’s determined to rebuild the business!
Whilst I was doing some research on the California wildfire and the damage to car collections I came across this story about a devastating fire at Country Classic Cars in Staunton Illinois from back in August 2017.
This was particularly upsetting having visited the site on a previous visit to the U.S.
All this stuff reminds me of a few years ago when we were visiting Country Classics in Staunton IL during one of our US visits, as you can see the truck was really nice and the price probably even nicer at $5950! Sadly I didn’t pull the trigger….
As you can also see there was a nice red 78 Silverado at $9350
