Fire destroys classic cars in Petaluma-area garage

Fire early Friday destroyed classic show cars parked in a garage on Lakeville Highway.

The vehicles were inside and outside a garage on the Gilardi Marina property and apparently were owned by the Gilardi family, longtime Lakeville community residents, according to fire officials.

The loss was estimated at about $250,000.

Consumed by the flames were two classic mid-1960s Chevrolet muscle cars, a vintage BMW, an early 1970s Chevrolet muscle car and two other vehicles, said Lakeville volunteer firefighter Brian Clarke.

"The three cars in the garage were show quality," Clarke said.
