Holy WTF!

Was it something electrical with the headlight or something that started it? Kind of odd considering your car was not only off, but had been so for some time...

Insurance might not cover if you have to many mods.

Hope your luck changes soon.

Check around and see if anyone else has had this happen with your brand of retros.
See if its happened to other people.
Might be something you dint know about thats been happening to people.

Btw, what kind of insurance you got?
Full coverage or something else?

Cuz if you noted to the insurance company you have aftermarket parts on your car and this is documented, I don't think they can say "we can't help you."
