I am sorry to report this, but this is a Wrap Up of the Warrior Project, as reported by pgackerman.
When we turned the Warrior Project over to Barry Byrnes in August of 2015, we had an agreement that if he should decide he no longer wanted the car, the club had the first option to buy it back. That agreement was for 2 years, to expire this August.
Barry really loved the car and took good care of it. All reports are that it looked as good as the day we turned it over to him. Club members near him say that he learned about the car and was able to maintain it on his own. On June 21, pgackerman received this from Barry:
I have some horrible news (WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT), last night while I was at work my car caught fire in the parking lot, and I have no idea why.
This really ***ing sucks.
Sorry for the bad news, but can you pass it along to the guys.
No one was hurt, but the entire engine compartment is toast, windows busted, roof melted, side plastic melted, interior damage, but the rims and front end did survive.
Insurance company will probably total it.
I hope I am able to keep it, but I doubt it. https://plus.google.com/pho.../6434256914411277473
