Default Boat Salvage - an interesting read

Came across this link on another site, while it's not performance boat related I thought it was worth sharing:

Great read thanks for sharing. It would be nice to know the outcome and I wonder if the cars are secured or if they became a large junk heep.

Didn't Mazda have a Program Car SPECIAL? LOL

The cars are strapped in place so they don't move during shipment. It says they crushed them all, there were concerns about unknown effects of laying at an angle for so long. Shame. Yup, shoulda had a sale!
