Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and most destructive Atlantic hurricane of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It is the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the five deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States. The storm weakened before making its second landfall as a Category 3 storm on the morning of Monday, August 29 in southeast Louisiana. But the destruction spread throughout the Gulf of Mexico and was responsible for damage from Florida to Texas.
It’s the personal stories of devastation that move our compassion to feel for those affected by such tragedy. Especially for those that are car fanatics. One particular case of personal loss was David A, a member of the Florida Car Club forums. Not only was his home completely lifted off its foundations; it was a gorgeous home too, but his prized E36 Turbocharged M3 Coupe was lifted by the powerful winds and mercilessly deposited into a shallow lake nearby, completely ruining the car.
Here’s hoping David was at least able to salvage the engine and some of the performance equipment to hopefully be able to transplant them in to another E36, they make excellent track cars when they’re pumping out 400+bhp.
