If you’re looking to see what happens to cars left to decay underwater, a good place to start is this flooded rock quarry in Pelham, Alabama. But if you’re not a diver yourself, you can watch The River Steward’s video where he explores the sunken playground 20 metres below the surface.
The flooded quarry — known as Blue Water Park — contains all kinds of insane things to explore, including a sunken sailboat, a fire truck and some cars. They find an old Ford Focus, with badging still visible, and what appears to one commenter to be a Datsun 280ZX.
Apparently there’s also a sunken school bus, but the divers went in the wrong direction and didn’t have enough oxygen to turn back and check it out.
The park mainly functions as a diver training centre, but recreational diving to see the cool underwater scenery is also welcome. Helpfully, Blue Water Park provides a map of its underwater attractions.
Or, ya know, you could check out the videos on this guy’s YouTube channel.
