There were a lot of nice looking salvage cars here online in NJ after Sandy. But then Sandy cars started showing up in the u=pull-its. And then you realize that nothing, and I mean NOTHING is savable on those cars. Maybe sheet metal. But even then, sand and salt into every nook and cranny. And interiors? Forget it. The rank smell of a closed-up seawater soggy car is enough to back you right away.

I'd buy that wagon (location?)in a minute...and yes, I did see all those '67-'68 Cougars going to waste.

I've built several water salvage cars, but all in fresh water. Great results with all of them. Never done a salty, though.

Graham, WA. Says the car was sold, but usually if they don't sell they crush them.

This one made me sad...at least it shows that these cars are rock solid.

1973 GTS Q code/C6 with buckets and console

1973 GTS H code, buckets, console, floorshift

1974 S&H replica...also shows these cars are safe

1975 base Torino sedan

1976 Elite, looks semi murdered out

Does anyone know how many of these cars were sold in Canada with metric gauges (not just made at Oakville)
