Not me. All I get to drive is a Ford Focus.

How is that car's roof lights still on? Wouldn't it have shorted out with the hood submurged like that?

We run our cars with two batteries. One runs the computer the other runs lights, radio, in car camera, and everything else a normal car does. The second battery is in the trunk. I could see them running lights off the second battery in the back and it is still above the waterline in this pic.

You'd be surprised.

I saw a film of testing they did locally, ran a car off the pier into the water to see if you could escape with power windows. Damn funny watching the car sink with the windshield wipers working as it settled on the bottom. The wipers did seen to lose their effectiveness under water, they did not appear to be keeping the windshield very dry, but they were operating.

Bottom line, power windows worked, wipers worked. Engine did stall, however.. that was in fresh water though, salt water would be more conductive than fresh water I believe, might not with in the ocean.

In Katrina, when cars went under, a lot of them would cut on their headlights, horns, radios, whatever.

Patrol cars that flooded were cutting on their overheads all by themselves.
