I'm hoping my M3 on jack stands made it. Not looking good.

Loss of life and homes aside, I can’t imagine all the cars lost to this.

Man I feel the pain.

This is just pure bad luck. The worst storm/rain in history.

All the best.

Texas has historically been one of those rare areas where classic cars can live a long life without the typical environmental hazards. I'm sure a lot of amazing old cars were destroyed by Harvey.

From what I can tell, my house and garages haven't flooded. I'll find out more when I get home tomorrow night. My e36 is a track rat and easily replaceable but my baby, E39 M5, is not. <crossing fingers>
