Barnacle find: Complete 1927 Chevrolet found aboard Lake Huron shipwreck

Divers in Lake Huron have recently discovered the wreckage of a ship named the Manasoo.

A storm wracked the ship, which pointed out a pretty damning problem: there was something wrong with the stern, and it was filling up with water in the middle of the night. At that point, they were, for all intents and purposes, screwed. Only five folks survived the sinking,…

Why does he do it? “Individuality, self-expression, and status are more important than ever these days,” Siedentopf told Vice. “But for some reason you see that things as ordinary as cars are getting personalized less and less, while it could be a strange but great form of self-expression. I thought I’d do people a favor by giving them a custom-made supercar.” “I thought I’d do people a favor by giving them a custom-made…

Along with two prototypes, only 999 were made, and the vast majority of them were finished in Hertz’s signature black and gold color scheme, but a few were painted other colors. Some were literally driven by renters from the agency…
