Nice looking, why do so many cars have fire extinguishers bolted to floor ?

I think it’s in case there’s a fire.

That is so when you are at a car event, and something totally random happens, like, hmm, say, uh, a Mustang loses control and slides into a school bus or something, you can be the hero.

When you post a car on this site, does the seller hold a reserve? If so, I wonder how many actually sell or is it just another way to get a market appraisal.

From faqs

What happens if the reserve is not met on an auction?
If the reserve is not met, we encourage the seller to work with the high bidder in hopes that they can reach a deal. The high bidder is not charged the 5% buyer’s fee.

You can list a car with or without a reserve on this site. Usually if it’s no reserve it states so in the title.

Best aspect of this site....type in “Chevelle” or “el Camino” in the search box. You’ll be directed to a page that shows any live auctions for Chevelles or el Camino and below that links to ALL Of them that have been listed in the past complete with all pics, stories, comments and complete bid results. You may have to be a member but it’s free so.....

Nothing hidden.

The only thing they don’t list as they may not know is if the car changed hands after a high bid did not meet reserve but the seller and high bidder got together.

A lot of really nice Chevelles and el Camino have been on this site.

SWEET!

Reely, many car shows REQUIRE an on-board extinguisher. I almost mounted mine the same way, but elected to leave it "loose".

I made this bracket out of wood that fits to the rim of the spare tire for my extinguisher.
