I'm sorry to hear this.. but actually, even though your insurance 
company totaled the car, you'd be suprised as to what can be salvaged 
after a flood. I bet the car could be made roadworthy again for possibly 
as little as $2k, depending on how mechanically inclined you are and 
how much of the work needed you can do yourself.  But remember this.. 
The longer the car sits untouched after being flooded, the more it will 
cost and the harder it will be to restore it as it continues to deteiorate. 

I realize that if you lost everything in the flood, then your probably a lot 
more interested in trying to put your life back together than worrying 
about a car. But if you are planning on rebuilding the D, then you should 
get the process underway as soon as you can or it will cost a fortune.. 
especially if the frame starts rusting from the epoxy being cracked in 
places that normally don't get wet.
