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:

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.
