With the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy almost upon us, we’ve been digging through the mountains of cars we were sad to receive. We have been looking for any data that could shed light on who and where were the hardest hit locations. We were also looking for any useful information that could help people protect themselves from the glut of flooded cars that have overwhelmed the used car industry. Unscrupulous dealers may try to pass these off as regular used cars.

The full guide to avoiding these cars is coming in a few days, so STAY TUNED for that, but we wanted to share a few of the images we discovered:

Condensation inside a car window is an important warning sign that a car has been flooded:



Another important warning sign is rust along the door frames:


Keep an eye out as well for sand on the seats:


It’s really sad to see these otherwise excellent cars destroyed like this. You can feel the heartache of the owners of these cars and you just wonder what else they suffered at the hands of this truly devastating storm.

  1. Yeah it is hilarious how concerns similar to this one begin looking unbelievably pointless compared to the world events. Another part of the cold-war, the actual real war that erupts, Russia-China gas deal axis… Nevertheless here we are with our social media dilemmas, – may we ever see the planet has improved? Iam not expressing that which you come up with is inconsequential, Iam indicating that the certain level of detachment is balanced. Thanks, Sarah @ http://phyto-renew350e.com/

  2. First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    ideas or hints? Kudos!
