ABC news reported tonight that the flooding according to a government agency will claim 300-500 thousand vehicles.

Many of those vehicles will end up on the used car market across the country, so beware.

Talked to a gal yesterday that works for State Farm and she said they have agents working overtime from all across the country working all the claims coming in.

Ha!

You beat me to it.

Its true many totalled vehicles from Katrina were never re-titled Salvage. Some major insurance companies were found guilty.

Who would have ever thought you could not trust an insurance company to do the right thing?

Could potentially devalue any car coming out of the Houston area for years. Imagine all the collector cars that will be sold w/o a word.

I'm a FedEx driver and I went to New Orleans to help get caught up after Katrina, they were stacking flooded cars under the expressway overpasses, everyday on my way in to work and on my way back to the hotel I could watch the cars pile up.
Every morning all of the new cars from the day before would be on blocks, tires missing, by the afternoon the windows would be covered with mold on the inside and you could no longer see through the windows.

Going to be hard to hide all the damage with the oil, sewage and like Spike said mold that will grow like crazy in the very warm weather let alone being underwater for weeks.

Who cares?
Cars are more easily replaced than family homes and family heirlooms, not to mention the lives of family members.
All of these cars will go to auction and the buyers may part them, crush them or fix and resell them.

I know. That's their excuse every year too for jacking the rates up.

how many of those with cars lost will be able to afford a new car? I was at my insurance agency last week and flood insurance is not a common loss. Many will be SOL
