From the waterlines, most visible on the blue one, it doesn't seem as though they were all that submerged.

I think lots of people will try and get out of trucks from the sandy zone ... Claim insurance and buy back seems a nice way to extract some cash especially if you intention is to keep it.

To be frank it can only help increase the value of vehicles with pristine titles!

Anyone here in a Yellow ST this morning around 7:30 am on the 101 in oxnard headed south? that was Me on the Triumph that gave you the thumbs up. Nice clean 90. Must have been cold for you too. no top at 35 deg. not our typical So Cal weather. I would have snaped a photo but but while on the bike and no go pro today.

State laws may require insurers to take title and salvage it.

I'm hanging out in the city all day from down town up to the UES & UWS and I don't see any Defenders. How do you see them in the city?

Between 5th and 8th Aves in the West Village I can guarantee you'll see at least 2 today.

When I'm looking for D90's I always use a good synthetic bait. Just put a quart or two on any street corner...be careful they get aggressive when their hungry....

Do you have your DefendAr with you? It's radar for Defenders. It's a must have. Alternatively, put a sign up for free rides to ECR and you'll pull them in.
