What are you talking about this is a deal, a pool and a car. Unless you are planning note planning on gutting the car and putting new wiring, fuel tank, and etc in the car and making it a drag car no, unless its free or super cheap that you plan to part it out and make $$$ of that

If it runs, why not? Strip the interior out, make sure everything is dry..and fully aired out. Maybe a light coat of anti rust on the floorboards (just in case). Water on the floorboards is just that..water on the floorboards. As long as there are no damaged electrical wires, or components (which are all replaceable from salvage yards)..it should be fine.I think the fuel tank will be ok, since it is completely sealed off, and in NO POSSIBLE WAY could get water into it from the inside of the vehicle..

Pass it by. All it's going to do is give you grief.

I agree with Alex. There are a lot of expensive components that could have been damaged by flooding. Find something else and save yourself a lot of frustration.Good luck!

If it's from a hurricane...NO, NO, NO...things will be growing in it that can cause you to be ill. (mold, mildew and other 'things')If it's just from a flood, well...maybe...but I'd be cautious.

Dont do it. Water gets everywhere so just putting new carpet and seats in wont really fix the problem. They only real fix would be to completely take the entire car apart to get the water out of all the little places not just rip out the carpet and seats. You will very likely end up with mold, rust, and the smell of stagnant water in the car either way.
