I got to thinking today about how many flood damaged antique cars might be written off as junk by the insurance companies.
there must be hundreds of them, sure some will be restored by their owners but I'm sure a good majority will be turned in for a check
anybody know what the percentage is or where the rebuildables wind up

If judged a total loss the cars are offered back to the owners at settlement, usually at 25% of retail. However in many states the title is branded or canceled. Still a real buy. If the owner doesn't want the car it will go thru a salvage pool and be auctioned.

Coparts is one wholesale auction big player.

I have hauled cars - trucks - utv's around the country from their yards.

But - unless you plan to attend & bring a trailer - don't bother bidding online.

Houston saw hundreds of tow trucks & operators come in from out of the area to extricate damaged vehicles & bring them to auction.

Daily storage fees for sold vehicles are probably just nuts due to the volume of vehicles being dealt with.

Good Luck! (and) "Happy T-ing!"
