the American diver-blogger Jared Leisek, checking one of the “urban legends”, found at the bottom of the river Oregon several cars, among which there were real rarities. And they all, presumably, came here not entirely “clean” way.
LASEK sank to the bottom of the Tualatin river near Portland (Oregon) to check out the local stories about how 20 years old girl drowned here Chevrolet pickup truck your boyfriend after an argument. The location for this is quite easy: on the rivers in the USA you can often find asphalt ramps in the water to make it easier to unload boats from trailers.

But Lasik obviously did not expect that instead of one car he will find there just 6 cars – three passenger cars and three pickup, which indirectly confirms the legend. One of the most unusual discoveries was the sporty Mazda RX-7 first generation, which was produced from 1978 to 1985. They are all equipped with rotary-piston engine Wankel with a volume of 1,1 and 1,3 l

the Second finding was the sporty Ford Mustang Mach 1 1973 second generation. These muscle cars were produced from 1970 to 1973 and was equipped with engines V8 volume of 4.9, 5.8 and 7 liter capacity up to 375 HP.
According to the assumption the diver found the car, most likely, were drowned there by the hijackers and insurance fraudsters, the benefit of easy exit made it easy to push the car into the water. However, the owners of these cars hardly need to be happy with the discovery: over the years water corrosion has done its job and now the car remains suitable only for scrap.
