Recent Syncro Disasters

 

It is fairly well known that Jimmy Buffet owned a beautiful Syncro Adventure Wagon.

Here's a photograph of it.

What is not as well known is that it caught fire, discount cialis cialis and was totally destroyed, physician probably in a matter of minutes.

Here's a photograph of it after the fire:

Buffet's syncro was very tricked out.   We don't have the details on exactly what happened.

Another beautifully restored Syncro Westfalia was also recently destroyed by fire.

Here's what it looked like before the fire:

It had been sitting in a barn in storage.  It was started and left idling while the owner tended to a horse outside.  When he returned, the back of the van was engulfed in flames.

The syncro was driven outside and a fire in the barn was extinguished while the syncro was left burning.  Here's what it looked like right after the fire was put out:

Fire is one of the greatest threats to a Syncro, a close second to accidents.

Make sure your fuel line clamps are routinely checked for tightness, and the lines replaced every few years.  Electrical fires are also common.
