Last December the Cheshire Fire Rescue reported a fire at two outhouses in rural England, located in Over Peover, Cheshire. 80 exotic vehicles and supercars were kept at the site, which ended up completely destroyed.

After more than three months of what happened, the Instagram account supercar.fails published photographs of the cars that were destroyed by the fire. Some of the cars that burned include a Ferrari LaFerrari , Aston Martin AMV12S , an Aston Martin Zagato , BMW M2 , Fiat 695 Biposto as well as a Ferrari 250 GTE .

The British newspaper Daily Mail also reported on a " mystery car " worth $ 4.05 million and which they say had "been stored in the outbuildings as part of a financial scheme."

What a sad end to the storage facility that burnt down. One unlucky person lost the following list of cars 😞
Aston Martin AMV12S
Aston Martin Zagato
BMW M2
Fiat 695 Biposto
Ferrari 250 GTE
Ferrari 355 Fiorano Handling pack
Ferrari 360 Spider
Ferrari 599GTO
Ferrari F12tdf
Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
Ferrari Pista (Red one)
Ferrari 812SF
Lamborghini Tractor
Lexus LFA
McLaren chassis
McLaren 650S
McLaren 675LT
McLaren Senna
Porsche 991 Endurance Cup
Porsche CGT
These are amongst some that were lost which included several Bugatti’s LaFerrari, classic Ferrari’s and so many more

200 prices have skyrocketed , I thought I did well in October but reckon if I’d held on would have got another $5-7k and mine was 7 yrs old previous facelift . You wonder how much of its hype but my dealer who I know quite well told me with only 900kms on the new one (Channeling you Jamie  ;D )  I could get $40k over what I paid back in September!

Issue for the landcruiser are 70s where affected by the decision to continue the 200 for another few months as the 300 is delayed ( 200 production taking allocated 70 motors ) and so now Toyota find them selves with no more 200s no more 70s till end of year and the 300 Same time . Then lead times on prados and everything else is blown out as well .
Here for a good time, not a long time!

Campsite fight leaves two men injured, one arrested on Victoria-NSW
border

........... 
Two men have suffered serious injuries and another man has been arrested after a fight broke out at a campsite on the Victoria-NSW border overnight.

Police are scouring the grounds for evidence after being called to Forges Bend Track in Yarrawonga about 8pm yesterday, where two men were found with multiple injuries.

Officers have spoken with a number of campers at the scene, as the investigation into the altercation ramps up.

A 23-year-old man was also taken to The Alfred hospital in a serious but stable condition, with substantial upper body injuries.

Police arrested a 53-year-old man at the scene.

He remains in custody assisting officers with their inquiries at Wangaratta.

"What I can say at the moment is that we have a number of crime scenes ahead of us," Detective Sergeant Marcus Boyd said.

"It's a little bit early to understand exactly what's happened....

"A couple of witnesses are in hospital and we haven't been able to speak to them on a formal basis at this stage."

It is understood some "edged weapons" may have been involved in the altercation.

Whether the three men were known to each other is still unknown.

Was a hard arse on the field.... and certainly had a hard battle in life afterwards

Quote
Rugby league legend Tommy Raudonikis dies aged 70
Tommy Raudonikis, perhaps rugby league’s most loved character, has died after a long battle with cancer.



The former Australian halfback and captain was with his partner Trish Brown when he passed away at 7.15am on Wednesday in a Gold Coast hospital, only six days short of his 71st birthday.

“Tommy Terrific”, as he was known to his fans at Western Suburbs Magpies and Newtown, had been plagued with bad health for nearly thirty years, fighting testicular cancer, enduring a quadruple bypass, combating neck and throat cancer and ailments of the back and shoulders. Yet he fought on until cancer finally did to him what a legion of English, French, and New Zealand players could not.

What a tough nugget & passionate.
A spade was a spade, he played hard, he would tell you the way it was, without the sugar coated BS.
RIP, Tommy.

Ironic that someone who hated Queenslanders with such passion chose to live out his golden years on the Gold Coast..... ;) :P

One of the last coaches to put some fire into those soft NSW harts.
A true legend of his time and will be missed.
