Ya, that was the tricolor (link in my last post) There were some people over on bimmerfest who had their ED cars on that ship.

What does this have anything to do with their stock? Plus it was Mazda's cars not Toyota or Honda, and don't forget I am sure they're all insured in the first place. If you need to sell some auto stock, sell GM and Ford instead, 3billion dollar loss coming from GM and stock goes up this morning...only in America

Damn, My M3 is on it's way over as we speak on a boat. Glad the Germans can pick good ships that dont sink. I've waited long enough for this car and it would be a tragedy if it sunk on it's way over here.

It is my understanding that the ship is still above water at a 60 degree tilt. I am quite amazed, it has not sunk yet.


"Two days after its bruised and battered crew was hoisted to safety, the Cougar Ace remained floating on its side 230 miles south of Adak Island in Alaska's Aleutian chain."
