RCastle If that car was under water,that engine is toast.Guarantee when you break it open,EVERY cylinder will be rusted.Have you popped a head off a car with a blown head gasket? Noticed the little amount of coolant in the bore has usually already started to allow surface rust to form.Magify that by thousands of times and that is what you will have with that car.Let the insurance handle it.EVERY car there that was under water is nothing more than boat anchors now.

Malibucdl I have no idea if the Pontiac run, we haven't tried it. I am a bit hesitant to turn the key for 2 reasons: 1, I would hate to do more damage to an engine that I could possible use, and 2, I REALLY don't want to get into that car to turn the key. It is still wet.

Ghetto Jet wow man, thanks for giving us an inside look.

did the Pontiac run?

RCastle At least you got that part covered.Glad youy are prepared.Be careful.

Malibucdl This is what I was wearing while working down there.

RCastle OMG!!!

Those pictures do more to show what happened than the news do.You see a brief shot of a home that was destroyed,but seeing that is unreal.I would wear a mask or something before I went back into a place like that.That has to be Bio-Hazard in there with all the sewage.Can not be healthy.
I saw a report a few days back,and the CDC was saying that the PPM for contaminents were off the scale.They did not have a way to measure how high they actually were in there.Be careful.

Malibucdl Here are some of the pics that I took while I was in the Lakeview area where the 17th Street Canal broke. He said that there was 9+ feet of water that rushed into the area within 30 minutes. The destruction is unbelievable, the smell is un bearable, and the heat magnifies everything 10 fold.

The furniture has been moved.

Insulation, mud, carpet, woodflooring and who knows what else on the floor.

300+lb. water softner has been moved.

THe backyard, notice all the vegitation is dead.

Table pedestal that has been disolved by the water.

Malibucdl I was in Lakeview today. Words cannot describe the destruction. I have some pics of my friends house that I will post tomo. Right now, he is passed out on the floor in my bedroom. His house had 9+ feet of water rush into it within 30 mins. And he was there!!!!!!

larryblack I was in Jefferson tuesday and Harahan on wednesday and thursday. The media did not do justice to the destruction I saw. My boss has been to Slidell and brought back pics of a field of "poles" where 100 ft pine trees once stood.

I hope your family is OK.

Malibucdl helrazr3: Any news on your cousin yet?

RCastle Glad to hear you all faired well.I remember when a tornado ripped through about 8 years ago.Missed my moms home by feet.It damaged the neighbors home,and uprooted a few trees in my moms yard.They of course do not take out as much as a hurricane,but they change lives in a second.
I wish you all luck and a speedy return to some sort of normallacy.
