Uggh, I just saw that on Vortex. I think that's a holding area by the Skoda factory in Prague. From what I hear, the Dresden Phaeton factory has also been evacuated.

So any thoughts on what will happen to all of the cars? I hate to think that all of the material will be scrap! I'd love to see if they would be sold at nearly-free prices to VW fans that would "restore" them for use on tracks or R&D work. (Or possibly for street use.)<P>Prospero

You can resell a flood damaged car, but the title is branded. The trouble is, you never really get rid of the electrical bugs and the mildew smell. You gotta wonder if they couldn't see it coming and get those cars moved, but I guess not.<P>I wonder how the Dresden Phaeton factory is doing?

AAAAAAAARGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<P>That's just a nightmare, right? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><P>Can't they at least somehow convert them into some....more affordable restore cars for those who can't afford brand spanking new cars? How about selling them to some org. or co. for a VW Cup racing event...?

I see the start of a new sales pitch...<P>It's 2-for-1 month at the VW dealer! With every purchase of a new car, you also get a flood damaged parts car.<P>

Trouble is, they're all Skodas. If you look closely, they're Fabias, Octavias and Superbs (from the roof, looks like a Passat). It's a real shame, but I'm sure they'll get an insurance check and auction them off to refurbishers or parts yards.
