Wrecks of vehicles in sunken RoRo ferries.

When RoRo ferries sink, people die, or they survive. And of course, they have to leave their now rusted and corroded vehicles behind. Let's have a look at all those sunken vehics:

A barely three year old Toyota Corolla Wagon on the Salem Express , sunk in 1991.

Only two years old when it sank: a 1989-94 Nissan Maxima. Also on the Salem Express

Antp, could you format my photos? Anyway...
DAF? Volvo? Looks like a Mercedes SK, but it wasn't made back then. On (or better: near) the Zenobia , sunk off the coast of Cyprus in 1980:

Somewhere I saw pics with the still leashed trucks on a (Greek?) ferry, sunk around 1980.

Still in good shape! :smile: And a Kangoo on the right!

A truck from the "Jan Heweliusz" sunk in January 1993 just a few miles near RĂ¼gen: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/fs7CzLSFaT4/0.jpg

Has someone got photos of the car deck from the Estonia? I can't find any: I know the Express Samina by the way, I used to be a shipwreck expert for years.

Bedford trucks: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7c/Thistlegormtruck.jpg carrying Norton 16H: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/01/14/article-2539106-1AA6B4C300000578-63_964x640.jpg and some BSA bikes aboard the "Thistlegorm" in the Red Sea:

More vehicles on the Salem Express include a bicycle, an Enduro motorcycle and a toy car that, after 23 years of Red Sea currents has survived extremely well.

Cool pictures. The reason why there isn't any pictures from Estonia might be because there is a dive prohibition.

Only if you're illegally diving there. Don't you remember the Jutta Rabe expedition in 2000? Here's some footage, (not from the Rabe expedition) but I can barely see anything: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZy9tbAq7OI
