Shakedown Ride Goes Up In Flames

Chief, sent this to me online and its rather heart breaking. 

"On Friday, April 29th, 2011, a fellow in Massachusetts completed years of painstaking work to finish the rebuilding of this 1938 Plymouth. Saturday April 30th, 2011 was to be a shakedown drive of about 50 miles, just to see how it would run and drive. While driving along, the left rear wheel came off, the car dropped, and the gas tank was punctured. The rest, as they say, is history. 
He said all 5 lug nuts had come off and the studs were stripped on the updated 1990 Ford Explorer differential.

The following three photos were taken on Saturday April 30 2011, within an hour of each other."
