Default Where is your fire extinguisher mounted?

I have a fire extinguisher in my vehicles and I plan to mount one in the 55.
Where do some of you have it mounted where it can be accessed quickly?

Thanks

Don

It's in the trunk. It's a big one. I had a car burn to the ground once. It changes things.

You're right.
I worked with a guy that watched helplessly as his newly restored 66 Chevelle burnt to the ground. The fire started under the hood and could have been extinguished if he was prepared.

I will always have one available.

You may be right about the location in the trunk. It's a full size extinguisher. Maybe I'll run a SS hose to under the hood, install a nozzle there. Run a rip cord to a handle mounted under the front seat. The fires start slow. The one that took my Nova out started like steam, like it was a head gasket. Didn't get really going until I opened the hood. Then it was like spontaneous combustion. Spread to the interior very rapidly. I couldn't put the fire out. I may get a smaller one for inside the car. Keep the big dog in the trunk.

Don't open that hood unless you have the extinguisher in hand.
