    My Tesla Roadster have been burn down
    Becase of the house it was parked in is burning down to the ground

    I have problems with the cooling fan and the connector need be replaced

    So the tesla was in my sisters barn that we have work shop in

    The barn took fire of some unknowed reason

    My sister and her famly is without home now, all there buldings on there farm is gone

    I lost 3 cars

    one Tesla Roadster
    one Desoto Busness Coupe 1941
    one Ford Custom 1950

    other cars thats is buring is
    1 Edsel Villager 1959
    2 1955 beetle
    2 1960 beetle
    1 Porsche Targa 1969
    1 MGA 1959

    and some newer cars

    The good is no person was hurt

    The only person that was home were the yougest daughter and a frend of her
    But they could leve before it began burn in the living house

    Fire is the worst thing that can happen to houses and cars
    Nothing exept ashes will be left

    Stefan I'm so sorry to hear of this sad news. I hope your sister and her family can recover with time. Losing your home to fire (and your beloved cars) is indeed one of the hardest experiences to endure, short of losing a loved one.

    I hope you can find another Roadster. At least come back to the Roadster forum when you can because we would miss you if you left.
