    I believe in some states like MS and LA water damaged vehicles are also reclassed with rebuilt titles. Since Katrina you can find cars all over the place for a really good price with these rebuilt titles. Buyer beware.

    Check the murcey/boxster build thread. That builder purchased a Boxster from a insurance vehicle sale site. I think it requires a $200 per year membership.

    You do not want too find one, those cars have audi at there heart and have more computers in them than horsepower, trust me there will always be something wrong with one of those cars if they were in a flood, and it will cost you more to fix them then buying a clean one

    I tend to agree with fill-up; I bought a flooded mustang at insurance auction. By the time I was done, I had to replace rear brakes from the e brake cables back, and the clutch slave cylinder got water in it and froze up, which meant a new clutch. The car's been fine ever since, but I hadn't budgeted $1000 and 60 hours of my time into dropping the transmission out to fix it. I'm not recommending against buying a flood car, just know what yr getting into and budget for more problems than you're expecting. Don't forget to replace all the fluids before you drive it.

    It depends on what you want to do. If you are looking for a cheap way to get a Lambo, then your logic is flawed. If you are going to rip out the engine and put something else in, then you have a chance. Cars are not design to go under water. Not taking the mechanical aspects of water in the engine or transmission, but non of the electronics were design to be submerged. Expect many electrical gremlins that will take hours to find and lots of money to fix. Lambo's also do not do well around water. Run a couple of Google searches about Lambo fires from the fuel injectors rusting out just from washing the car. Then again, who cares what we say? Go get yourself a submerged car and post your experience.

    WHAT?!?! My father just bought an 05 Gallado that has injector problems (or so were told)! Good thing we have up to 10days to inspect it before making final decision lol
