Went out yesterday for a quick paddle and ended up finding 3 cars on the bottom with side imaging.

I sent the info in to Eugene police and they set search and rescue to confirm it's a Ford pinto and 2 pickups trucks

Also confirmed there's catfish in there as they were hanging out in the Pinto

Hope that they were simply dumped. And there were no humans inside!

a Pinto you say... perhaps it was, well, doing what Pinto's were famous for, and they drove it into the pond to put out the fire? lol

I had a buddy who owned a pinto in high school and the floorboard was rusted out and you could watch the road go by at your feet. Passenger seat was held up by a 2x4😜 seriously though, it kind of disgusts me that people dump cars in our lakes and ponds☹️

Little bullheads, 6-8" long

I would imagine there's others out there unless they get eaten too quickly

I did find what I'm assuming was a carp underneath me

As of 2021 there was at least one largemouth over 6lbs out there

I saw a brief write up in the news about this. @troutdude, article said there were no human remains.
