There were two cars, and one big mystery.

As Pinellas County divers thoroughly searched Lake Blossom for a missing veteran, they ran across something else they weren’t expecting to find in the murky water. Divers uncovered two vintage cars, both of which have been missing for decades.
Before you start imagining rare (and valuable) Hemi ‘Cuda convertibles or fuel-injected 1957 Bel-Airs, the reality is, the cars are pretty much junk at this point..and they are not worth much at all. Pictures from the scene show bent and corroded pieces of metal, almost unidentifiable. The first car to be brought to the surface from its watery grave was a vintage Volkswagen Beetle, most likely from the 1950s. Shortly after that, they found a classic Dodge Coronet, manufactured back in the mid-1960s. Because of their extremely rough condition and the decades of rust, positive identification will be difficult, to say the least.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Sunshine State Sonar Search Team and Recon Recovery teamed up to retrieve the cars. The water damage was so severe that the cars fell apart as they were lifted from the depths. Complicating the extraction, the water was deemed too shallow for air bags to be used, so the vehicles basically fell apart as they emerged from their respective locations. So far, the only clue investigators have is the license plate that was on the Dodge, which was last registered in 1974. No human remains were found in either vehicle. Source:

Have You Heard The New Album? Freaky!

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
