You wouldn’t like the chances of a car starting again after spending an extended period of time underwater, would you? Particularly if said period of time is as long as six months.
That’s how long this vehicle has spent languishing at the bottom of a lake, but it isn’t just any car: it’s a simple, robust Lada Samara. Granted, it looks to be in an unfortunate state, with the roof having been crushed when the surface of the lake froze over, but due to the lack of complexity under the bonnet, it could still cough into life.
The guys from Garage54 give the Samara a fighting chance by flushing the coolant, cleaning up some of the electrical components and adding fresh oil, but will that be enough? Have a watch of the video to find out.
