    The article didn't say what cause the fire, but I have to wonder if there was criminal intent. With that many valuable cars why didn't they have a night watchman on site to at least call 911 and prevent the fire from destroying all most everything. I know a dealership has lots of flammable fuel so it didn't take much time to be expand.

    that whole story is just strange

    Why didn't they have a night watchman? Or smoke detectors? It was a movie set, but wow.... all the cars were owned by people, not HBO

    I'd like to be a hidden microphone and listen to all the outraged car owners who think they didn't the full value for their car(s). I wonder if some of the owners are going sue HBO for negligence for not providing proper protection.
