Paul Fisher of Fisher Models has made some fine 1/24 resin shelf model display kits of various 1960s
sports racing cars.
 
He lives in Paradise, CA, a small town of 27,000 located near Chico in Butte County which by all news
accounts was destroyed yesterday by the Camp Fire which had only started hours before and has now
spread to over 70,000 acres, more than twice the size of the city of San Francisco.

Remember folks, traffic lights timed for 35 MPH, are also timed for 70!

Gosh, let's hope not!

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Some of the videos of the Butte fires on YouTube and Google, are really quite terrifying.

 

My thoughts and prayers go to all who have suffered.  :(

I just talked to my sister, who's about 45 miles east of Paradise, and yes, the whole town is burnt down. Houses, commercial buildings, hospitals, everything... gone.

My buddy, Daniel Paolillo lives in Chico. I have been following him on FB.

 

Many people in Paradise have lost everything - and I mean everything.

 

I cannot even start to imagine the hell that some of them must be going through.

 

Life can be so cruel   :cray:

Almost 20 years ago I motorized a Fisher C4R with a machined chassis and a Pittman DC706 motor.  Given the weight of the body, it was not destined to be a racer but it certainly looked lovely on parade laps.gallery_99_85_95932.jpg
