In the southern united states (Florida, Georgia, ECT.) any car which is turned into the insurance company for flooded must be scraped and cannot be fixed and returned to road. although some salvage companies ship these cars to the northern states, clean then up and sell them. my experances with these vehicle is not good many electronic problems caused by corrsion
