Up to 8 inches of flood water wasn’t going to take this fourth gen Camaro.
Jacksonville, Florida resident Chris Williams was driving through an apartment complex when he noticed a clean-looking fourth gen Chevrolet Camaro looking a bit taller than usual. Upon closer inspection he noticed the owner jacked up his ride (literally) on four cinder blocks in preparation for Hurricane Ian’s eventual downpour.
Check out what Williams saw below.
At around 1 P.M, and on behest of several comments for updates, Williams took this photo.
“Drove by earlier,” Williams commented. “They relocated the jack.”
Much to Facebook users chagrin and contrary to popular belief, the Camaro owner did NOT reposition the cinder blocks 90 degrees for maximum strength.
“Why does everyone turn them blocks on there side, Jim Schlick commented. “That’s not there designed strength point.”
“Concrete and cinder blocks are made to be stacked horizontal with holes up!”
By early Wednesday, Hurricane Ian touched down into Florida and slowly started making its way through America’s 27th state.
While reduced in strength and rain fall, Floridians throughout the day already, mostly experienced the majority of Ian’s wrath.
According to the latest forecast, while wind and rain already did a number on the 904, the center of Ian wouldn’t even hit Jacksonville.
Yesterday, on Wednesday the 28th at 10:19 A.M., Williams posted this photo update.
Thankfully, storm waters didn’t cause flooding in his immediate area, by the looks of it, at all and he might’ve not even needed the blocks.
Regardless, we’re throwing him the dub because it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Consider this Camaro saved.
If you live in an area that’s prone to flooding and have to park your car outside, take a page from this Camaro owner’s book.
At less than $12 for four, they might mean the difference between a flooded and dry car.
