Family Rushes to Save Prized Classic Car From Hail Storm

We have to warn you that if you just so happen to be one of those car enthusiasts who places a high value on the appearance of your vehicle, this one just might make you cringe a little bit. However, it appears as if the circumstances on this day unfolded in such a way as to not give these muscle car owners very much warning before they would be left to scramble in order to save their classic Pontiac Firebird from a storm that was rolling in quickly, a storm that would end up dropping hail from the sky, obviously a form of precipitation that can do pretty big damage to a car if it’s let outside and uncovered.

The action is all captured from a security camera as the hail is falling heavily and these two are left to try to think of a solution on the spot. The first thing that looks like came to their mind was covering the car with blankets so, as the storm rages on, they scramble outside, trying to beat the weather as best they can to cover up the car and save it from as much damage as they possibly can. You can only imagine the stress is flowing through their veins as they scurry to get the job done just in the nick of time.

If you follow along with the video below, you’ll be able to see the footage for yourself that may just make you tense up a little bit in anticipation of them completing the job. We’re really left to wonder that if a car that sweet was sitting on the driveway, what exactly it was that’s being stored in those three garage spaces. They must have some really sweet machines hiding out under the dry and covered spaces.
