Default Abandoned truck at SL. Caught on fire, burned down, the guy left.






This Chevy truck was tearing up test hill saterday night about 9 o'clock. I didn't see how the fire started but i watched almost the hole thing burn to the ground, stupid chevy's. Then the owner of the truck said he would just build another one and said nobody saw me, jumped in a truck with another dude and took off.

Even a burnt 60 front is worth rebuilding, right?

Anyone see what color it was?? Looks to be an early 80's?? Wondering if I might have seen it, or know who's it is/was. What did the owner look like?
