    What a way to wash a title, just take a old salvage title car to Maine!
    I remember when this happened Mike, you and I talked a bit about buying my 73 Camaro at the time.
    This guy is gonna sell the car to some unsuspecting guy...

    The water wouldn't have bothered me. I've seen worse. I friend had his '68 300 convertible be completely submerged (twice) in running flood waters. Tons of mud to clean our. If that Camaro hadn't gone through an auction, in Texas, it would still have a clean title. Of course, many, many titles have been cleaned by going to other states

    Well it bothered me plenty. For them to total it, you know it was bad. There were fish in the glove box, the gauges were full of water, the interior was ruined with alge and goose shat, I'm sure the vinyl top which was new would have had to come off and the motor was running when it went in.
    No thanks.
    Proof that insurance is good to have.

    I used to see this all the time with boats. They would sink in the slip,sit in on the bottom in the salt water for weeks,the owner would raise it up,change the oil,clean the carb,and dry the distributor out with brake clean,and broom,they would fire right up,and out fishing they would go. I saw some boats that went down multiple times and always fired back up when they were raised. Engines covered in silt and sand running like a top. Sometimes I think we worry about things too much.

    LOL I gather you couldn't have turned before it went in the lake? Happen that fast?:confused:

    I don't think the water damage would stop me from buying it either if the price was right, I mean we fix worse things all the time with rust, bondo, etc.

    Hell, wish I coulda dunked mine after all the bodywork just to get all the dust out before paint. :crazy:
