So what was the original cost of the cortez car? What was your father planning on doing with it without the vin and title? (parting it out)?

The car was $500 & yes he just wanted to part it out.  He always said he didn't know why he didn't just go ahead & buy the tags & vin..  Guess he felt the body was too rough at the time..  It already had rot in the floors, trunk & quarters when he bought it.  But that's just the way it was back then..

UPDATE ON THE CAMARO IN THE LAKE:Trooper George Hoyle told the Daily Elk Citian newspaper that the Camaro was running when it hit the water. He said the driver was driving "a little faster than he should have." He says the impact damaged the radiator fan, a motor mount and the fuel pump.

Hoyle says the evidence suggests foul play was not involved and that the driver may have been unfamiliar with his surroundings.

So I think that puts it to rest. To bad they couldn't get their bearings fast enough to swim out of it.

The noted damage is interesting, wonder if the broken motor mount had anything to do with putting the car in the water.

Didn't the broken engine mount issue sometimes cause the throttle to stick open, hence the recall to fit interlocking mounts?

Yes, a broken LHS motor mount *could* cause the accelerator to jam up (I had it happen to me with my dad's '63 Impala.. Smiley ...   but I doubt that would have been an issue with the car less than 2 yrs old?  and I don't believe it had a HP engine in it...  the mount could have broken as a result of hitting the water at speed...
