Ash/soot is terrible for paint, just FYI

It's funny, I wonder if they think leaving it encased in a rusty and corroded crate frame somehow adds to the appeal. At least they could have washed it and dried it down properly after it was pulled from the mess.

You'd think the dealer had insurance to cover it?

Unless it was delivered to the buyer that way, which apparently, is a big no no. At least with Honda.

I wouldn't buy it without inspecting it in person. But there are several paper, styrofoam, and plastic items that look undamaged. So the burn effects seem to be modest.

Interesting to see how they actually are shipped.
