Tar top battery? Stake bed looks original. Trying to look on the bright side here, but not much bright to see.

Wish I could see it, guess the water is too murky! All I am seeing is two little boxes were the pictures should be.

I have some pics of an AA on the bottom of a lake in Maine.

People driving on the ice too late in the year can result in a vehicle on the bottom.

It'll probably run, but someone stole the fan and I recommend a new fan belt!

I remember an article in the Model A News or Restorer about a Model a that had gone through the ice. They raised it and had in running in a couple of days! It may not have been submerged as long as this one though. Ed
