went to eat breakfast this morning at the western sizzlin, decided to take the corvette, "beautifull day to take it out" as i was paying to leave a guy comes running in door said he called 911 and there was a red corvette out side on fire. i ran outside and it was mine, my hands started shaking real bad and almost threw up my breakfast. the employees came running outside with fire extinguisher i tried to pull the hood latch but the fire had allready burned threw it. here is the firefighters and the aftermath. RIP

Had my oil pressure sender burst spraying oil onto exhaust
Lucky i had two extinguishers in my vette and popped the hood before the release cables melted, extinguished it quickly just needed some paint repair to hood new oil pressure sender and wiring repairs.
I now have extra wires from the latch to the wiper area, looks like you may have had the dreaded fuel pressure regulator diaphragm failure
You know what they say get back on the horse, hope you replace her quickly
