Well I don't know what would possess someone to drive a sporty coupe that sits no more than six inches from the ground through flood water, but whatever turns you on.

just dont get it, even if you drive durin floods your car is gonna mess up anyway, there's other parts in your engine bay that arent goin to be protected from water and are goin to mess up like electrical for example
