That is sad, the end of a gorgeous Miura.
On most of my cars I have had fire extinguishers fitted. Luckily I only had to use a fire extinguisher in anger once, when I saw flames coming out of the engine bay of my 1972 911S 2.4. In the traffic. A new fuel pump had just been fitted but unfortunately the fuel lines were not replaced. When the new fuel pump pushed petrol through with proper pressure for the first time in years, the old fuel lines could not cope and it was a waterfall of petrol in the engine room. Unclipped the fire extinguisher and let rip. Got the fire out before it could get going properly. No damage done at all except to those old fuel lines. Whew!
Had a fire extinguisher fitted to my bluebird before I collected her a month ago.
