Everything about that story is so... perfectly ironic.

Baghdad Fire Department... car destroys itself in a fiery blaze on 9/11...

weird.

That is the twilight part of the day, that the one fire department to have put out the fire, was indeed the BAGDAD Fire Department.

Both the BagDad FireDepart and Arizona DPS said it was the trailer brakes that caused the fire.

If you watch this video below, and notice the trucker out front of the trailer fire, he was the one that got our attention that the trailer was on fire. He said he had seen smoke for about 1-2 miles, but was unsure if it was the truck blowing black smoke or the trailer and by the time he got asside us , it was on fire.

http://www.lsxmag.com/news/kelly-fro...nd-on-sept-11/

So we were on way back from our 1st stop of our "Right To Bear Paws Tour" when this happened on 911....

This is carnage after they put out the fire:




FYI we were going to do a 90 day tour of the USA and at end announce the Freedom Fighter was going to raffled off for charity to benefit service dogs for Veterans

USAA has value our trailer less than $5,000 despite having $25,000 into it and the Freedom Fighter is at book value.

<>We are wanting to build a new tribute camaro, and if anyone wants to contribute, I have a goFundme at: http://www.gofundme.com/freedomfighter2

We posted several perks for donation levels, so check it out!

After we do our tour with tribute camaro, we willbe raffling it off as originally intended with the Freedom Fighter

Kelly, sorry about the ride man. I know all the work that went into it. Definitely will be donating. Will pass it along to the rest of the Camaro South family - Larry

So sad. And the irony is so incredible, 9/11, 15th anniversary, Bahgdad FD. Thank you for the good work you are doing and good luck with your next project. And thank you for your service.

What a tragedy. I'm glad no one was injured. Sure made a show though

I bought one raffle, wish I could have bought more.

Best of luck! Gen6 SS/1LE hopefully

Wow.that sucks that happened.
The insurance payout is very much USAA. Not as good as they used to be. They try to get out of everything.
