Corvette Fire New YorkA massive fire that broke out on the set of an HBO miniseries in Ellenville, New York, early Thursday morning destroyed a used-car dealership and several 1990’s era cars and trucks, including Chevrolet Corvettes and Camaros. The cars were among 27 vintage vehicles that Automobile Magazine New York bureau chief Jamie Kitman had supplied to the HBO production via a film-car company he owns.

The precise number of vehicles lost is not yet known, though Chris Busby, general manager for 613 Automotive Group, told the Poughkeepsie Journal; “There’s nothing left.” The dealership buildings, and “about a dozen vehicles were destroyed,” he said. According to the Shawangunk Journal, the fire is said to have started in the showroom building and also claimed camera and film equipment, with damages possibly reaching into the millions of dollars, but nobody was injured in the blaze.

Featured Car of the Week

1967 with Multiple N.C.R.S. Top Flights!  
1967 NCRS Corvette Coupe
What Mike likes about this car:
“This breath taking 1967 Lynndale 2 top Convertible is one of most collectors, and my, all-time favorites. The 327 is more desirable than the big block because of its balance and easier drive ability.

This car is stunning in every respect.  The color combo, options, fit and incredible paint luster will blow you away.

The frame up restoration is second to none.  And with all the awards proving its provenance, once this car is bought it will remain in the next owner’s possession for a very long time.

Don’t miss it, it will be sold, and you’ll see your neighbor washing it out front of his home next Saturday morning!!”

And speaking of standouts! This Lynndale Blue Convertible is undeniably one of the prettiest you’ll ever see!
1967 NCRS Corvette Coupe

It’s quite original, but had undergone an extensive frame-on restoration in the early ’00’s. The quality of the work done along with the extensive correctness of the car garnered it no less than 6 N.C.R.S. Top Flight Awards with the highest score being a 99.1!

Been in collector’s care since restoration and awards!
