    Help with oily substance in pool!

    OK, not mine, or anyone I know, just found it online and thought, man what a clean up this is going to need:



    Here's the story:
    This photo released by Ashley Campasino via the York Daily Record, shows a red Mazda Miata at the bottom of the Campasino family swimming pool in Stewartstown, Pa. on June 30, 2008. Kim Taylor thought she had set the emergency brake. But her wayward red convertible nonetheless rolled downhill, crashed through a fence and plunged into her neighbors' in-ground pool. The car was removed from the pool the same day. Shown in the picture are from left, Kim Taylor, her husband, Bob and their daughter Alex
    It would be fun to dive and explore what's inside that sunken treasure.

    Yeah, if I was the guy in the photo, my arms would NOT be behind my back, but probably a little more outstretched and mobile.

    Red is a nice contrast.

    Too bad it sank so fast or maybe the skimmer could've gotten it. Now they're going to have to use the vac.

    Or leave it as a conversation piece ? They could turn on the lights at night. I guess the radio wouldn't work.

    That is really crazy. I think it's amazing how it got through that one little section of fence without tearing down more. It looks like the posts on either side are still standing.
