The car was at a shop getting the exhaust fixed. The guy didn't get the job done by Friday night, but Biggie was going to pick it up Sat morning to check into the brakes, and drive the car to the Mopar Happening at Belividere. The flash flood came in Friday night, and went from nothing to 3 feet of water at the repair shop between 3 am and 7 am! The water was already too deep to pull the car out by 7 am. There are 7 or 8 cars & trucks at the repair shop, all of them under water. I went by about an hour ago, and all you can see of the wagon is the roof. The water is 4' high, and rising, really. It is expected to crest sometime tomorrow morning, but it is not expected to drop much until late in the week.
Then the real work begins. I believe Biggie has arranged for a specialist to clean up the body & undercarriage, we are more concerned about the body then the mechanical. A 5.7 Hemi & trans are pretty easy to find, a nice 57 Dodge wagon body, not so much so.
The whole deal sucks, but we have to keep moving forward. Biggie's dad, Gene
