Wow, very very sad situation in Florida right now. I can't imagine going through that.

I must admit if not Photoshop those uprights for the wing on that Superbird are amazingly strong.

That might be a Hemi Superbird. Aren't those resonators before the Chrome Exhaust Tips? Only Hemi cars have them.

Once a vehicle has been submerged in salt water, it will need to be dismantled to the last bolt and nut and rebuilt. I would be surprised if an insurance company is going to do that. Best they can hope for is to get enough from insurance and keep the car to rebuild.

I think the damage on the Orange quarter panel is from the wing crushing it, so yeah, that wing must be very stout.


Remember the guy that recently purchased the pair of '68 Hemi cars ?? I don't recall if he is near the coast or not. Hope not.

Looks like the regular pipe not the resonator. But it does look like a Dana rear so it is, at a minimum a four-speed car.
