James Towers and his son Jacob were taking his modified Chevrolet Camaro out for a test run when the muscle car caught fire.
As Towers reaches for the shifter, smoke begins to gather near the center console. Moments later flames appear between the console and driver’s seat. Shortly after that more flames appear down by the passenger floorboard and that’s when his son cuts the video short.
“Yes… me and my 12-year-old were going for a cruise and he was taking the video with my phone…” Towers said in a YouTube comment. “Fuel line cap blew off and sprayed fuel into the firewall and the fire came up into the interior of the car. We got out with only a couple of minor burns…”
