Submerged in saltwater everything is ruined. Submerged in freshwater it can be salvaged and then you can spend a lot of time trying to get everything to work well enough to unload it on Craig's list.So how much damage can submerging in water cause to a modern car?
Practically anywhere. After the big flood we had here many cars were trucked out to who knows where. Locals went all the way to the West Coast to buy cars and some came back with somebody else's old flood car. I remember one guy being really proud of a Pontiac Grand Prix he bought in Seattle until I showed him the outboard motor propeller tracks in the roof that had been Bondoed over. I had seen the same car before it had been trucked out and repaired so I referred the buyer to the original owner.And where do these flood cars wind up for sale ?

The ones with "salvage" or 'totaled" titles will be re-titled in various states until it is gone....then end up on a used car corner lot.those without a "salvage" or "flooded" title
will make the rounds through several auctions -
and end up on a used car corner lot -
Then why do they keep building the bridge out of ice? And where do they get the ice makers for it? I mean all the ones I've seen make ice smaller than what I assume would be the optimal size to build a bridge with.Around here there is always someone who is the last car in the spring to cross the river on the ice bridge near Pike's Landing. These cars usually get their picture in the paper and become well known. Caveat emptor.
It isn't free. There is a pretty good business in selling glacial ice that has jillions of tiny gas bubbles under tremendous pressure trapped in it to high end stateside saloons because it fizzes in your drink. It's cut and shipped by air by the hundreds of pounds.So you're saying you have free range ice up there?
