    Welcome to Style, General Mopars!

    Nice car!

    Are you located in New York? Those are some clean cars for the "salt belt"!

      Yep, I'm right here in The NYC. This Polara came from Iowa, the Magnum is from Tennessee and the Monaco spent half its life in Utah, but you can still find clean cars in this part of the country. Fortunately, these all survived Hurricane Sandy.

            Nope, Bronx. I'm seeing a heartbreaking number of classics from Staten Island that were just destroyed from the storm. A buddy of mine lost nine beautiful cars out there.

              Battered to bits? Flood damage wouldn't be bad except the car's value gets flushed. But they can be brought back, the end result of the damage is about where most restorations start anyway.

                Storm surge flooding is usually much different than just rising water flooding and it beats everything to hell. If you're lucky enough to be inland far enough to get away from the effects of the front line surge, then the water beating everything to hell isn't so pronounced. I've been the victim of rising water flooding 3 times and even that is no fun but at least the water didn't have the wave effect (no high winds) and I didn't lose too much. I put my cars up on stands and the tires didn't even get wet but man, it made a mess of everything that wasn't up on blocks and canned goods!

                  Nice car. I had a new 73 Chrysler that color.
