Recently there was a visual display of good ol’ Dodge Dependability. A Minnesota local caught more than fish when fishing at Mayhew Lake.
The man was scouting for fish by lowering a camera into the lake. In addition to seeing fish, he saw a pickup truck under the water. He immediately called the local Benton County Sheriff’s office. A team of divers was sent in to examine the truck.
The truck was a Dodge pickup and the license plate matched that of one that had been reported stolen 16 years ago. The vehicle was found about 25 meters from the shore so authorities think that it was driven over the lake when it was frozen. It was then left on the frozen ice, but once the ice melted, the truck sank to the bottom of the lake.
Although the car is too water-logged to run, the cold water preserved the vehicle quite well. There are no signs of bodywork damage, although the outside is rusted due to the water. Considering that the truck could have been in there since the turn of the century and has no bodywork damage, that is quite an impressive Dodge!
We know that Dodge is solidly built, but the Dodge truck found helps to prove that even more!
