1935 Ford Submarine

J/K, this 35 Ford is at rest at the bottom of Spirit Lake in north central IA. It was lost in 1943 while out on the lake cutting ice. The truck was found with the ice cutting tools still on the flatbed, they were removed and are now at at a museum.
A couple of years ago the DNR (IIRC) wanted to see what was at the bottom of the lake and found this along with a assortment of boats that were lost over the years.
Surprising that it is still all together and not just a pile of unrecognizable metal and moss.

The sea grass is what's probably holding it together. It should probably be left there.

Interesting that it landed flat as a pancake and not on it's nose or top.

I'm no expert but doesn't metal stay in pretty good shape due to the lack of oxygen???

Jeez, I hope the owner isn't still in there............
