How exactly does a pickup that was flooded in Hurricane Sandy and totaled by the insurance company end up back on a car lot for sale? All we know is that whoever buys the truck unknowingly is not going to be happy.
ABC’s Nightline takes an in-depth look at the journey of a Ford F350 dually, lovingly nicknamed Spirit by the children of it’s original owner, from the saltwater floods of New England to a used car lot in Texas, and the surprising twists taken by the insurance company involved in the process. This truly is an informative look at a process that’s put almost 100,000 flooded cars back on the road, likely in the hands of completely innocent buyers who have no idea the car or truck they purchased was at some point deemed unfit to be driven.
