huh, you know SOMEONE is gonna get some of those cars, then sell it off, but the thing is those cars won't show up as FLOOD cars, so if your car shopping in about 2 months time, be cautious if you find a 2003 M3 for $15,000, you should check for seaweed in the intake manifold, or for fish under the SEATS!!!!
:D :D

i think all those cars are destroyed there is no way everything is flooded and all i doubt you can use them again. Thats my opinion, but hey i wouldnt mind deep sea diving for those lol. But anything is possible:)
