Photos: Abandoned car becomes Irene casualty

    If you ditched your Chrysler on East River Drive hoping Hurricane Irene’s floodwaters would carry it out to see, you’re out of luck.

    The plate-less now water-logged Concorde is still waiting for you. And so is the Slim Jim you left behind. You probably shouldn’t eat that. We’ve got some photos of your car at various points over the weekend. Perhaps the flat tires helped it stay its ground.

    Whatever the case, if this is your car, NewsWorks’ Brian Hickey wants to talk to you. This little red car has a story to tell.
