You’d have to be living under a rock to not know about the recent hurricanes that have devastated parts of Texas and Florida, and the flooding has been particularly hard on homes, businesses and cars. You might be able to replace the drywall in your home before the studs become covered in black mold, but according to Forbes the flooding from Irma and Harvey destroyed over a million cars & trucks. What does that mean? It means that junk yards are going to be bursting with molding cars — and locals in Texas will note that the Texas Motor Speedway is being used to store the overflow of cars looking for someone who will part them out or ship them to Yemen with sketchy title status.
So, go ahead — step up and grab that Aston or RR that you figure you can clean and drive for the next few years or perhaps use the engine for your next dune buggy. Just be sure to pay attention the grease pencil marked “water line”.
Seriously, how much less reliable could a Triumph Spitfire be that has had flood water half-way up the door?
