When Louisiana dealers tried to find ways to make their vehicles fly off the lot, I don't think this is what they had in mind. Hurricane Katrina has sent cars crashing around dealership lots and the surrounding areas, drowning an estimated 50-75 dealerships and sending dealers and their employees into refuge. Analysts expect Katrina to have little overall impact upon the auto manufacturers, and while it will take time for dealers to rebuild, the number of people needing new cars after the devastation is expected to be high. Although we expect the number of people who will probably be able to afford them in the area will be low.
