Dennis Gage, host of My Classic Car on Speed TV and noted mustache aficionado, had a particularly rough Christmas this year. According to the Indianapolis Star, Gage's home in southern Indiana caught fire and was subsequently destroyed. His wife and son were home at the time but managed to escape without injury. Sitting next to the house is Gage's detached garage, which is home to several classic cars and motorcycles. The garage also escaped the fire without injury and his collection was unharmed.

That's certainly great news about his cars and bikes, but at the end of the day all of that stuff is just that – stuff – and it can be replaced. We're very happy to hear that his family made it out of the house safely and hope that the affable auto aficionado and his family rebound quickly. Thanks for the tip, beammeup1701!

      Horrible, I just found out the reason he was away was that he was attending to his gravely ill 95 years old Mom in Illinois. She died the same day as the fire! Terrible!

      Sorry, but no jokes from me as this is not a joking matter. I'm glad his family is alright. I'm sure Dennis lost a lot in the fire. I would be devastated if I lost the pictures of my late wife and daughter (over 2000 pics of my daughter). My Classic Car is the best show SPEED has in its lineup.

      Hang in there Dennis, it's just stuff as you are left with all that matters, your family. Best Wishes.

      I read from Barry Mcguire that he has made a full recovery. I have seen that home on the internet and I am a fan of My Classic Car. That is horrible! Was surprised to learn a few weeks ago one of my co workers went to high school with Dennis.

      I can ride my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars.

      I bet that part of the house was protected with remnants of his mustache in the form of a firewall.

        Word has it that the mustache spread the fire through the house as he was escaping. On a more serious note, it's good to read that nobody was hurt.

      Just looking at this guy makes me laugh each time... Kinda sad now that I think about it. I've been laughing at him for years.
