Im sure Ill be here looking for help to get the latest one running like the lost one. Thanks for all the help in the past and in the future.

That sucks man. To the average folk who had a camry or whatever it's no big deal, but when you have a nice car it hits hard.

That sucks man. This storm did a lot of damage to new yorkers and surrounding areas. Hope you find what you are looking for. Not trying to throw salt on the wound but why did you not evacuate if you were near a flood prone area?

I hear ya, many of my friends from seagate and manhattan beach said the same thing. But like I told them if you looked at the weather map and the size of the hurricane it made irene look like blip on the radar. Hours before it hit, the tide was rising pretty high. Nothing like that occurred during irene. **** happens, as long as your safe and your family is safe thats important. A car you can always replace.
