This is a story of a Restoration

I restored this boat from April 2006 to October 2008. You will need to go to the very bottom, October 2008, to find the biginning. See blog archive on the right side.

Retrieving my Oldsmobile

I started out Sunday evening to return to Iowa to get my broken down tow car.  Now the tow car is being towed by the tow pick-up.
I took a few pictures of the flooding on the Missouri River south of Omaha, NE.  It is flooding for several miles east of the river.  All Montana  snow.

This has been going on since about June 15th.  Interstate 29 is closed a few miles south of this point.

So now, repair my tow car, and get ready for the Priest Lake boat show on Labor Day weekend.

How's your car now? I hope it's still in good shape even after it was flooded. That also happened to my car. Sadly, it couldn't be recovered because the water damaged the transmission box so badly. =(

Cars that have been submerged in flood water definitely need a lot of work, and that means spending time and money on them. You need to replace everything, from the engine to the seats. It's like buying a brand new car, in fact. It seems the flood really caused a lot of damage in Iowa. And what’s worse about it is that the flood is generally from Montana's snow! Too bad Iowa had to suffer too.
