Goodbye, guys.

It's with a heavy heart I report True Blue #250093 was w/o (written off) Saturday night owing to a catastrophic engine compartment fire. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on here for all the help you've given me and for taking the time to help me learn about my bull. I'll never forget any of you guys.



Take care guys, and don't forget your CPS sensors.

Geico is continuing to investigate but my assumption is leaking fluid somewhere and a hot catalytic converter, I wasn't even here when it happened; was at a friends and my stepdad tried to move it to get his car out of the driveway. :/

Thank you, as am I. It happened in about 3 minutes total from key on to engulfing fire. My stepdad is a cop so he's got a good head on his shoulders but I only cared about his and my family's safety - heck with the car, everyone's written off a Taurus at some point in their lives.

Some more gore if you'll all oblige me

I just shed a tear for a lost Bull. Sorry for your loss buddy. Take the insurance money and get another Bull.

My first car burned up in my driveway. My neighbor and I were tossing water on it until the Fire Department arrived. But it wasn't a bull and I could see the ground when I drove the car! Life as a broke teenager driving a moving death trap....GM bowtie garbage.
