    Buying a burnt up Daytona IROC R/T

    Good morning,

    Sadly, a T3 Daytona in Maine burnt up while parked recently. It smoldered the hood, tops of the fenders, windshield and dash. Should the engine and transmission still be good to use? The guy thought it caught fire because a valve cover leak (sounds unlikely to me). I would think a fuel line would cause it.

    I will try to get some pictures. Has anybody bought burnt vehicles here before?

    I have bought burned vehicles for parts before. Unless it was really hot engine and trans should be ok.

    I definitely want the parts out of it. My Spirit R/T has over 250k miles so a spare trans isn't a bad idea. My plans for the chassis is a 3.8 V6 5 speed.

    I have bought some for parts and i have repaired some for customers in the past. that fire doesn't look like it got that out of hand. that car should be fixable or just rape it for parts, any under hood pics? Judging by the damaged area on the hood, I would say that fire didn't burn very long and didn't get that hot. I would be willing to guess the valve covers didn't melt?
